activity that is self=checking, collaborative and practicesfinding the volume of prisms? This is a set of 15 problems that need to be cut apart, reassembled in the correct order and fastened together like a chain until the end is reached.
Each of the links has a diagram of a prism with the previous answer having a volume. . Students will need to find the volume of the prism and then find the answer on another strip. Students can either line up the strips in order before fastening together or attach as they go.
Students begin with the link marked start and continue until they are out of links. If students are struggling, teacher can let students know which is the last link.
