What's in a cube: level 2

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. Estimate the volume of irregular cuboid objects, eg toy train, backpack and doll's house. Rotate a 3D grid to help you work out dimensions in centimetres. Estimate the relative volume of the different items. First, estimate the regular part of the shape. Then, estimate the irregular parts and add up the total number of cubic centimetres that make up the item. Use a 3D animation of each estimate to improve your answer.
