## Instructor Overview

Students will extend their knowledge of volume to find the volume of right prisms, seeing that the volume is the area of the base multiplied by the height.

# Key Concepts

Volume is measured in cubic units. The area of the base of a prism indicates how many cubic units are in the first unit “layer” of the prism. Multiplying by height gives the number of layers, and therefore the volume.

# Goals

- Find the volume of right prisms.

SWD: Some students with disabilities may have difficulty connecting newly introduced information with previously learned concepts. Consider ways to help students with disabilities to make connections between what they have learned in previous lessons about volume and right prisms and finding the volume of right prisms.

Consider the prerequisite skills for this lesson. Students with disabilities may need direct instruction and guided practice with the skills, measurement, and concepts needed for this lesson.

Students should understand these domain-specific terms:

- volume
- right (domain-specific)
- prism
- cubic

It may be helpful to preteach these terms to students with disabilities.

ELL: As new vocabulary is introduced, be sure to repeat it several times and allow students to repeat after you as needed. Write the new words as they are introduced, and allow enough time for ELLs to check their dictionaries or briefly consult with another student who shares the same primary language if they wish.
