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: scaling up solids

Compare the volumes of cubes and rectangular prisms before and after being scaled up (enlarged). Notice that 'similar solids' in the mathematical sense have the same shape but different volumes. Explore the relationship between side length and volume when scaling up solids. This learning object is the fifth in a series ...

Measures: scaling surface area

Compare the surface area of cubes and rectangular prisms before and after being scaled up (enlarged) or scaled down (reduced). Notice that 'similar shapes' in the mathematical sense have the same shape but different surface areas. Explore the relationship between side length and surface area when scaling solids. This learning ...

Measures: scaling down solids

Compare the volumes of cubes and rectangular prisms before and after being scaled down (reduced). Notice that 'similar solids' in the mathematical sense have the same shape but different volumes. Explore the relationship between side length and volume when scaling down solids. This learning object is the sixth in a series ...

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 ...
