Measuring and recording data for their set of Wood Blocks.

We have just finished determining the volume of a regular shaped object - a rectangular prism - using a ruler.  We drew rectangular prisms and used the formula V = L x W x H to get the volume.  The units are cubic centimeters ( cm3 ).
Comparing their results.

A full se of class data for the Wood Blocks!
