After reviewing briefly the two formulas for the volume of a rectangular prism, we delve into a real-world problem involving a room with a floor area of 9 1/2 feet by 12 feet, and height of 8 1/2 feet.
To find its volume, I first calculate the area of the floor, and then multiply that by the height.
Then, the question continues: if the ceiling is dropped so the room is only 8 ft high, how much volume does the room lose?
The first part of this lesson deals with the volume of a rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths, and is found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2e4m75S7AQ
This lesson fits the Common Core Standard 6.G.2.
