## Volume Investigation

With your partner create rectangular prisms with the volumes below. Draw your representations in your book. Student A uses the applet while Student B draws. Then switch roles.
Use the sliders to make prisms that have a volume of:

^{3} - 15 units
^{3} - 24 units
^{3} - 38 units
^{3} - ____ units
^{3}(you and your partner can choose the volume here) - ____ units
^{3}(you and your partner can choose the volume here)

**How many ways can you represent these volumes? Is there more than one way?**** Challenge yourself by unchecking the show/hide box for the formula.*## New Resources
