How to Teach Students About Volume and Rectangular Prisms

have always enjoyed teaching volume to my students. It's one of those interesting math concepts that requires students to use their visual spatial reasoning. I love any math concept that can boost a student's math confidence! There are a couple of things that I have learned work best for my students when it comes to calculating the volume of prisms and composite figures.

Volume with Snap Cubes & Freebie!

Teaching volume can be a daunting task. The materials I needed were not at my fingertips, so I needed to get creative. I knew I had one thing, and that was 3 tubs full of snap cubes. Why not have the students build the rectangular prisms, so they can break it apart and count how many it took to make it? After I modeled and explained what volume is, I gave students the chance to build some rectangular prisms. On my Promethean Board I posted a shape where you can see the number cubes in each…

Hands-On with Rectangular Prisms!

Today, I wanted students to get a "real feel" for the volume of rectangular prisms. We learned the formula yesterday and I felt as if they understood how to complete the formula, but I wasn't convinced that they were convinced that there really were 36 cubic centimeters in the rectangular prism they calculated on paper ;) Whenever possible, I like to bring in some hands-on activities so that students can grasp a concept and truly see how a formula, fractions, etc work. I find that in math it…
