Inside a cubic metre

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Watch a game show host as he demonstrates the size of a cubic metre (100cm x 100cm x 100cm). See how small a cubic centimetre looks when compared with a cubic metre. Work through a series of questions about the length, width and height of a cubic metre. Work out area of layers within a cubic metre. Use multiples of 100 to calculate volume. For example, 0.5 of a cubic metre can be expressed as: 100cm x 100cm x 50cm = 500 000 cubic centimetres. Fill in data tables by working out progressive totals of length, width, height and volume (up to one cubic metre).
