Cubirocks go!

Help three cuboid characters estimate and compare the volumes of cube-shaped rocks made by a special volcano in 'Cubiland'. Each character uses a different measuring unit: small, medium-sized or large. Notice that if 8 medium cubes and 27 small cubes fill a large cube that this ratio can be applied to all 'cubirocks'. Use ...

Measures: similar solids

Compare the sizes and angles of a range of cubes and rectangular prisms. Notice that 'similar solids' in the mathematical sense have the same shape and possibly different sizes. Corresponding sides are in proportion, and corresponding angles are equal. Identify solids that are similar, and create solids similar to given ...

Measures: volumes

Compare the volumes of a range of rectangular prisms when scaling up (enlarging) side lengths by different ratios. Notice that the rectangular prisms are not similar in the mathematical sense, but it is possible to predict the effect on the volume produced by the scaling of the sides. Identify and describe the relationship ...
