Unit 3, Lesson 23# The Volume of a Right Prism

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use the known formula for the volume of a right rectangular prism. Students understand the volume of a right prism to be the area of the base times the height. Students compute volumes of right prisms involving fractional values for length. This concept will later be extended to finding the volumes of liquids in right prism-shaped containers and extended again (in Module 6) to finding the volumes of irregular solids using displacement of liquids in containers.
