Volume Basics

Today we began going over Volume of some basic shapes, box shapes and rectangular and triangular prisms.

We started by looking at some figures made of boxes to determine volume.  Some examples are below.  All of these figures have 27 cubed units in them.

In class we completed these problems.  If you missed class because of theater, please complete these on your own this evening.

The best way to think about volume of prisms is finding the are of the front and then multiplying it by how far back it goes, basically thinking about it in layers.  Here are some notes from class:

Homework is to complete both worksheets, shown below.  Please use a calculator if you would like and be sure to show your work.
