TLF ID L2316
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 between side lengths and volume when scaling up prisms. This learning object is the last in a series of eight objects that progressively increase in difficulty.
