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.

Cavalieri’s Principle (Volume)
The volume of the tower in Pisa is the same whether it is leaning or not. Your collaborative geometry learners will use manipulatives to discover that the volume of shapes (i.e. pyramids, prisms, cylinders, etc.) are the same, whether they are right or oblique, as long as they have equal altitude and the cross sections parallel to and at the same distance from their respective bases is the same.
