Classroom Considerations

  • If you aren't logged in to Learnzillion, you will be prompted to create a free account to access all materials for this resource
Pros

  • Visual example of finding volume
  • Extra practice and examples in slides under resources
  • Notes template provided as graphic organizer
Cons

  • Does not show how to solve using volume formula
  • References "whole" unit cubes although they are not whole, but leftover halves combined
  • If used with previous videos in series, learners may believe that the prism can hold 27 whole unit cubes. It does not reference that some cubes are split in half to make combined 27 unit cubes
