A problem-solving activity using volumes of prisms and cylinders, plus constructing and solving simple equations.
Students are shown prisms and a cylinder with measurements given either numerically or as unknowns x, y and z.
They must use the information to form and solve simple equations to find all the unknowns as well as the radius of the cylinder.
Students can then create their own prism with the same volume to go in the empty box.
