**NCTM: Side Length, Volume, and Surface Area of Similar Solids**

*relation created by Caroline Hall*

This is a simpler version of volume in rectangular prisms. Students manipulate two solid rectangles (shown side-by-side) to see the effect that even a small change in length/width will have on volume. Values are computed automatically in this applet.
