# MSS1/L1.10

MSS1/L1.10 Work out simple volume (e.g. cuboids)
(a) know that volume is a measure of space
(b) know what measurements are required to calculate volume, and how to obtain them
(c) know that measurements must be in the same units before calculating volume
(d) know that the volume of a cuboid = length x width x height (or depth)
(e) know that volume is measured in cubic units

## Area, perimeter, volume re-cap task

I made this resource to check prior learning of a group I took over from another lecturer.
It could work well for assessment, revision or as an extension task.

## Perimeter, area, volume for IWB

Lovely introduction to perimeter, area and volume. The learner can move squares and 3D blocks around to see how area and volume relate to physical squares / cubes.

Please note you must have the ActivInspire interactive whiteboard software installed on your computer in order to open, view and use the flipchart resource.

## Nets of 3D shapes - group activity

Graduated activity for E2-L2 mixed ability groups. Involves recognising and sketching and drawing nets; constructing a chosen 3D shape; and (for L1 -2 only) calculating volume and surface area. With detailed adult numeracy and Functional Maths mapping information.
The tutor will need some pre-prepared nets – suggested web links are included.
