Big Ideas: Real world complex situations can be modeled using known shapes. Volume is the amount of space inside an object. This task builds on student work in previous grades finding volume of real world objects. Students need to decompose the given object in order to find the total volume. Vocabulary: rectangular prism, pyramid, cylinder, cone, volume, base, height, radius Special Materials: calculator
