Constructing and Calculating Volumes
Grades: 5, 6
Learning Target: Students will construct complex rectangular prisms in OpenSCAD, then calculate their volumes.
Step 1: Remind students how to calculate volume of a rectangular prism: V=L*W*H.
Step 2: Teach students how to construct color-coded rectangular prisms with OpenSCAD.
Step 3: Demonstrate how to calculate volume of the complex prism.
Step 4: Students will work individually or in pairs to create a complex color-coded prism.
Step 5: Have students take a take a screenshot (snip) and calculate the volume of their prism. Solutions should be posted/pasted in the chat. Other students and groups will check their work.
- I can construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- I can attend to precision.
- Scale, Proportion, and Quantity
