Prism Volume

Prism Volume Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet contains a series of images depicting rectangular prisms, or three-dimensional shapes, constructed from smaller cubes. Each prism is to be measured by the students, who must determine its length, width, and height in cubic units. An example at the top of the page shows how to calculate the volume of a rectangular prism using the formula Volume = Length × Width × Height, with a completed example provided. The students are tasked with applying this formula to find the volume for each of the prisms shown.

The worksheet is designed to teach students how to calculate the volume of rectangular prisms using their dimensions. It demonstrates the application of multiplication in three dimensions, reinforcing the geometric concept of volume. This exercise helps students practice mathematical computation and spatial reasoning. Furthermore, it lays the groundwork for understanding more complex geometric calculations and the properties of three-dimensional shapes in both math and science contexts.
