CSERD Interactivate: Surface Area and Volume Relations

Physics Front Related Resources

CSERD Interactivate: Surface Area and Volume covers the same topic as Illuminations: Cubes
relation created by Caroline Hall

This is a very simple Java applet in which students fill a box with cubes, layer upon layer, to visualize how volume is calculated in a rectangular prism.


CSERD Interactivate: Surface Area and Volume covers the same topic as 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.


CSERD Interactivate: Surface Area and Volume covers the same topic as Illuminations: Hay Bale Farmer
relation created by Caroline Hall

This standards-based lesson for grades 6-8 lets students calculate and compare volumes of cylinders and rectangular prisms using bales of hay as the common unit.
