Name ____________________________________ Period _______ Jane needs to calculate the volume of a rectangular prism for the water feature for Backyard Makeover. Jane uses the following notes to help her. Stage 1 Stage 2 Attributes of a rectangular prism: o ______________________________________ o ______________________________________ o ______________________________________ o ______________________________________ Stage 3 The volume of a rectangular prism is the measure of the amount of space inside the prism. Volume is measured using cubic units. in3 cubic inches ft3 cubic feet yd3 cubic yards Stage 4 A rectangular prism is similar to layers of ______________ To determine how many cubic units will cover the ____________________________. Each “layer” is covered rectangular region above, we can count each individual with ___________________. To determine the number of cubic unit or we can use the formula: ______________ to cubic units occupying the space in a rectangular prism, we calculate the number of cubic units to cover the area of the can count all the cubic units ____________________, or we rectangle. Calculate the number of square units that will can calculate the number of cubic units that cover ________ cover the area of the rectangle above: rectangular layer and ________________ that by the number of rectangular layers which represents the Area = ___________________ ________________________________________________. Stage 5 If each rectangular layer has ______ square units and the Stage 6 Formula for Volume of a Rectangular Prism: prism is _____ units high, then the number of cubic units that will fill the rectangular prism is: # of cubic units per layer ∙ # of layers ________ ∙ ________ = ________ V = _______________ 1) Jane creates a table and graph to represent the relationship between the area of the base of a rectangular prism and the volume of a rectangular prism, with a constant height of 4 units. Area (units2) Process (Height = 4 units) Volume (units3) 0.25 0.5 0.75 1 1.25 1.5 1.75 2 x 2) Select the correct steps Jane will use to calculate the real-life volume of the water feature for the Backyard Makeover. a. First, convert all dimensions from inches to feet, using the scale 0.5 in = 2 ft. Then, multiply all 3 dimensions together and divide by 2. b. First, convert all dimensions from inches to feet, using the scale 2 in = 0.5 ft. Then, multiply all 3 dimensions together. c. First, multiply all 3 dimensions together. Then, convert that product from inches to feet, using the scale 0.5 in = 2 ft. d. First, convert all dimensions from inches to feet, using the scale 0.5 in = 2 ft. Then, multiply all 3 dimensions together. 3) Now, use your answer from question 2 to calculate the real-life volume of the water feature for the Backyard Makeover.
