Good day, Mathletes!
This module was designed and written to help you gain an understanding of key concepts involved in finding the volume of a given cube and a rectangular prism and expressing these in cubic centimeters and cubic meters.
Volume is the amount of space that is enclosed in a 3-dimensional or solid figure. Cubes and rectangular prisms are some examples of solid figures. To get their volumes, you may need to determine first their dimensions: lengths, widths and heights.
So, what are you waiting for? Proceed and stay focused.
At the end of this module, you are expected to be able to:
- find the volume of a given cube and rectangular prism using cubic centimeters and cubic meters; and
- appreciate the value of understanding the concept of and being able to find the volumes of cubes and rectangular prisms.
Before going any further, let us check your understanding about finding the volume of a given cube and a rectangular prism using cubic centimeters and cubic meters.
