Prisms and Pyramids

October 2, 2015

Today we put our knowledge into action.  The challenge was to create a square based prism 12 cm tall and a square based pyramid also 12cm tall.  The square bases could be any dimensions, but must be te same for the prism and pyramid.

planning is an important first step.

Next we measured and carefully cut out our pieces.

We used old filing folders that the school wanted recycled.

After a little tape and glue we had the solids formed.

We added the calculations for area and volume of each solid, and also the area and volume of the pair together if combined.
