# Volume of Cubes and Cuboids

Students learn how to find the volume of cubes and cuboids using the area of the  cross-section and depth.  Learning progresses from counting the cubes inside a shape to calculating the volume using a formula.  More able students find the volume of prisms.The start of the lesson is used to practice spacial reasoning.  In the main students learn how to find the volume of cubes and cuboids by counting and as a product of length, width and height.  The plenary challenges students to calculate the volume of a prism.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to find the volume of a cube by counting.
• Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cuboid as the product of length, width and height.
• Some students should be able to calculate the volume of a prism.
