Description:

This interactive Java applet allows users to investigate surface area and volume of rectangular and triangular prisms by dynamically changing each of the three dimensions with a slider bar. In Explore mode users change the dimensions and view the effect on the prism and on the measures of surface area and volume. In Compute mode, the applet randomly displays a prism and the user computes its surface area and volume. Options include prism type, viewing angle, several 3D drawing options, and an optional scoring feature that tracks the number correct.
