              Volume of Pyramids

              Students learn how to calculate the volume of a square based pyramid by considering the base area and one third of its perpendicular height.  As learning progresses they are challenged to consider composite pyramid shapes involving cuboids and to find the height using Pythagoras' Theorem.
