TLF ID M012002
This is an interactive resource about investigating the surface areas and volumes of rectangular and triangular prisms. The resource can be used in one of two modes. In the Explore mode, the student can vary the height, width and depth of the prism, and the surface area and volume are calculated automatically. In the Compute mode, the dimensions of the prism are given, and students are required to calculate the surface area and volume. The resource allows students to view the prisms from different perspectives.
