This lesson gives students the opportunity to practice and apply what they have learned about volumes of prisms. They use trigonometry and the Pythagorean Theorem to find missing measurements, and they use decomposition to find volumes of more complex solids.
When students recognize they can add a line to a diagram to create a right triangle, enabling them to calculate values for missing dimensions, they are looking for and making use of structure (MP7).
