The volume of various solids is explored in five sections with the last being eight example problems including step-by-step solutions. Using Cavalieri’s principle and easy-to-follow direct instructions with colored pictures, the first section defines volume, the second explores the volume of a right rectangular prism and related solids, expanding to a general formula for the volume of any prism.

Lesson One: Perimeter, Area, Volume
Students explore perimeter, area and volume. Using geoboards, toothpicks, and marshmallows, students create specific shapes. They are directed to use formulas to find the volume, area, and perimeter of the created shapes. In groups, students estimate the number of cubes that will fit in containers.

Proof: Volume Ratios in a Carnot Cycle
Sal goes back to a look at the Adiabatic process in this chemistry video. He sets up a Carnot Cycle that occurs within an adiabatic process; meaning there is no transfer of heat. From that problem, Sal constructs Volume Ratios which is a mathematical way of proving that no heat was transferred.
