For this activity, students first fill out a ballot guessing which two boxes they think have the same volume and which have the same surface area. Then, they complete the provided chart to record the dimensions, surface area, and volume of each box. There are three summarizing questions at the end of the worksheet. Key is included, but answers will vary depending on which boxes you use.
Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas 𝘝 = 𝘭 𝘸 𝘩 and 𝘝 = 𝘣 𝘩 to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
