The volume of a number of different prisms are found in this unit.

This unit uses the idea that the volume of a prism can be found by using the formula V = Ah where A is the cross sectional area and 'h' is the length of the shape. Students are given a number of different prisms to work on and can change the shape for themselves to create new problems.
