              Volume of Cuboids and Prisms

              Students learn how to calculate the volume of prisms using the cross sectional area and depth.  As learning progresses they consider composite and triangular prisms. To introduce the idea of calculating the volume of prisms the class determine, whether by counting or multiplication, the volume of three cuboids at the start of the lesson.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the volume of a cuboid using the cross sectional area and depth
              • Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cylinder and triangular prism using the cross sectional area and depth.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the volume of any prism by identifying the area of the cross section
