Description:

This simple Java applet for grades 5-8 lets users explore how volume is calculated in a box-shaped object. The user fills the box, layer upon layer, with small cubes to see why volume is a cubic function in a rectangular prism. Dimensions of the object can be easily changed by adjusting the width, depth, or height. This resource is part of a larger collection of lessons, labs, and activities developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
