3-D Shapes (Chapter 1)
Lesson 2: Prisms and Cylinders (1.5)
Learning Goals of Lesson 2
By the end of this lesson, I can:
-describe different types of prisms
-explain how cylinders are similar to prisms
-identify the base shape of a prism/cylinder
-identify the height of a prism/cylinder
-find volume of prisms by multiplying base area and height
-find volume of cylinders by multiplying base area and height
Video 1: Perimeter (1D) Vs. Area (2D) Vs. Volume (3D)
Video 2: What is a Prism?
Video 3: Volume of Prisms
Video 4: Is a Cylinder a Prism or NOT?
What do you think? Its volume equals Base Area x Height! So ...
Video 5: Volume of Prisms
Video 6: Volume of a Cylinder
Note: Always use the π key rather than π=3.14 unless instructed otherwise.
Activity 1: Volume of Prisms
Take out your scientific calculator and let's calculate some volumes!
