Unit of measurement for measuring Volume-a cube.

Unit of measurement for measuring Volume-a cube.

  • Lesson Aims
    • Recognizing the concept of volume.
    • Recognizing the use of an accepted unit of volume measurement-a cube.
    • Recognizing which measurements are necessary for determining the volume of a prism.
    • Recognizing that different structures may have the same volume but different heights.
  • The Name of the Model
