# Interactive video lesson plan for: Relationship between volume of a pyramid and prism

#### Activity overview:

Volume of a Pyramid and Prism Demonstration
Deriving the Formula

The area of a pyramid is exactly 1/3 the area of a prism with a similarly shaped base, and the same dimensions.
For example, if you have a pyramid with a rectangle base, its area will be 1/3 the area of a rectangular prism with equal length, width, and height.
The area of a pyramid with a triangle base will be 1/3 the area of a triangular prism with an equal base length and height.
Let’s see this visually by pouring water from a pyramid into a prism.
It should take three pyramids to fill up one prism.
