This Self-Learning Module (SLM) is prepared so that you, our dear learners, can continue your studies and learn while at home. Activities, questions, directions, exercises, and discussions are carefully stated for you to understand each lesson.
Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.
Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
What’s Up, Mathgagaling? This module was made for you to learn on how to solve routine and non-routine problems involving volume of a cube and a rectangular prism in real-life situations using appropriate strategies and tools. Formulas may serve as guides in solving for the volume of a cube and a rectangular prism. Knowing how to derive and use the formula properly in real-life situations is important, especially that we are surrounded every day by objects that have volumes. So, are you excited to learn? Ok! Let’s start.
After finishing this module, you are expected to be able to:
- solve routine and non-routine problems involving volume of a cube and a rectangular prism in real-life situations using appropriate strategies and tools, and
- appreciate the value of being able to solve problems involving volumes of cubes and rectangular prisms.
But before going any further, let us check first your prior knowledge about the lesson.
