Description
Compare the volumes of a range of rectangular prisms when scaling up (enlarging) side lengths by different ratios. Notice that the rectangular prisms are not similar in the mathematical sense, but it is possible to predict the effect on the volume produced by the scaling of the sides. Identify and describe the relationship between side lengths and volume when scaling up prisms. This learning object is the last in a series of eight objects that progressively increase in difficulty.
Objective
1. Students manipulate dimensions of solids to explore how volume changes.
2. Students apply a formula to calculate the volume of a range of solids.
3. Students identify the relationship between side length and volume in non-similar solids.
