Background Tutorials

Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category.

A rectangle is one of the many fundamental shapes you'll see in math. Rectangles have special properties that can be very useful in helping you solve a problem. This tutorial introduces you to rectangles and explains their interesting qualities!

Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

The term prism is a cool name for a special kind of three-dimensional solid. This tutorial defines the term prism and shows you how to name a prism using the shape of its bases. Check it out!

Further Exploration

Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems.

Finding the volume of a rectangular prism isn't so bad, especially if you already know the length, width, and height. In this tutorial, you'll see how to use that information and the formula for the volume of a rectangular prism to get the answer. Check it out!
