Building Apartments: Connecting Volume of Centimeter Cubes to the Formula V=Bxh

(View Complete Item Description)

Students will build "apartments" with centimeter cubes by packing boxes (template included). In addition, they will use centimeter cubes to build a variety of rectangular prisms and record the area of the base (B) and height (h) on a worksheet. They will use that information to complete the volume formula, V = B x h. Students will think about how the volume changes as the height and base of rectangular prisms change.
