In class, we learned what cross-sections would be created from common 3-D figures by using play-doh to make those 3-D figures and slicing them with parallel and perpendicular cuts to the base. Below are a few of those shapes (among others) that we created!
Volume of Right Prisms (Rectangular and Triangular)
Finding the volume of a prism will depend on the face of the prism. At times it may be as easy as a rectangular prism (LWH = V), or it may require a different formula to find the area. Pay attention to the type of prism and then use the appropriate formula.
Volume of Pyramids
Volume of Cylinders
For the volume of a cylinder,
Volume of Spheres
Volume of Cones
Volume of Rectangular Prisms (optional review)
Finding the volume of a rectangular prism is simply length * width * height to get the cubic units of the capacity of a 3-d figure.
