MATH – Measurement & Geometry

We followed up yesterday’s grade 5 review of Volume of a rectangular prism with 3D drawings of prisms. Using triangular dot paper, we learned to draw the prisms that we made with linking cubes. ALL the rectangular prisms had a volume of 12 cm cubed.

We discovered that there are 4 rectangular prisms with a volume of 12 cm cubed.

V =  x w x h

V = 1 x 1 x 12

= 12 cm cubed

OR

V = 2 x 2 x 3

= 12 cm cubed

OR

V = 1 x 3 x 4

= 12 cm cubed

OR

V = 1 x 2 x 6

= 12 cm cubed
