A power point for volumes of prism, good if you have some mini white boards. Starter is all volumes of cuboids, which can be done firstly by counting cubes then by finding surface area. Then an animation showing how to find the volume of a prism with a more complicated surface area. There are two examples, one listening example where i ask students to be quiet, then a questions example where they are encouraged to ask question, i did this because this group was driving me barmy and not letting me finish a sentence without jumping in and asking a question.

Excellent fore the lower set and good to use with cubes in the classroom. Thank you for this - a bit of a life saver : )

Perfect for lower ability GCSE or to introduce the concept to children at an earlier stage

This is a really nice powerpoint on calculating the volume of prisms. The initial questions allow students to count cubes of cuboids and would be great with mini whiteboards as the answers are animated to appear. The next set of questions require students to calculate volume just from the dimensions of the cuboid (not sure what is meant by 'surface area' in the description). Then the powerpoint goes on to look at different prisms and shows two examples. A great resource to use as part of your lesson, perhaps as a starter, thank you for sharing.
