Open Up Resources 30 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue working with the volume of right prisms. Calculate the volume of a prism by decomposing the base of the figure into simpler shapes. Let's look at how some people use volume. Learning targets: students can calculate the the volume of a prism with a complicated base by decomposing the base into quadrilaterals or triangles.
