One Cubic Unit

A unit might be measured in inches, feet, centimeters, etc.

What did you find?

Yes, it is 8 cubic units!

Remember… there are some cubes you can’t see!

Watch...

What did you find?

Yes! There are 12 cubic units!

The formula for finding the volume of a rectangle is ….

L x W x H = Volume

This means we take the length times the width, then multiply that by the height.

L = 3

H = 3

W = 2

3 x 3 x 2 = 18 cubic units

What did you find?

4 x 2 x 3 = 24 cubic units
