You and the students can build this model to show the relationship between the volume of a square prism and a square pyramid.
Included in the package is a pattern for a square pyramid and a pattern for a slanted rectangular pyramid.
You will need to make five pyramids:
• One square pyramid
• Four slanted rectangular pyramids
There is an illustrated set of directions included for assembling the two different types of pyramids and assembling the rectangular box so it will open into three congruent square pyramids.
After viewing this model students never forget that the pyramid will fit in the rectangular prism three times.
