Geometry Module 3, Topic B, Lesson 9

Students in library

Student Outcomes

  • Students understand that given similar solids A and B so that the ratio of their lengths is a:b, then the ratio of their volumes is a3:b3.
  • Students understand that if a solid with volume V is scaled by factors of r, s, and t in three perpendicular directions, then the volume is multiplied by a factor of r·s·t so that the volume of the scaled solid is (rst)V.
