Rectangular Prisms Hit 5th Grade

Rectangular Prisms Hit 5th Grade

Students in 5th grade have been studying gemoetry, with a focus on computing voume in 3-D rectangular prisms.  To reinforce this concept, we have been creating our own prisms using a professional graphics app - Corel Draw.  Each child has practiced creating prisms in solid and transparent formations, and calculating the volume of each.  To expand on this activity, we will be creating solid composed rectangular prisms in usual fomations and unique positions.  All of these lessons incorporate the NYS Commn Core standards in mathematics for fifth grade.
