## Boxing On

- Units of Work
- Geometry and Measurement
- Level Three

This unit comprises 5 stations which involve the students developing their ideas of volume using standard units.

## Russian Boxes

- Units of Work
- Geometry and Measurement
- Level Five

In this unit a number of small boxes are produced (by folding), that fit inside one another like Russian dolls. Lengths are measured and areas and volumes are calculated in order to make scale comparisons.

## Scale Factors for Areas and Volumes

- Units of Work
- Geometry and Measurement
- Level Five

This collection of teaching ideas provides students with the opportunity to discover the effect of a change of length by a given factor on area and volume.
