Volume of Cubes and Cuboids

Today we are going to look at finding the volume of cubes and cuboids within our Maths lesson. The lesson should take you about an hour or a little bit less.


Start of by carefully reading through the Learning Reminders which are attached below as pictures. The information on each of these should be very familiar to you as we have learnt this before.

The two main things you need to remember are:

  • Volume = length x width x height (v = l x w x h)
  • The unit of measure e.g. cm3


When you feel like you are at a stage to practise finding the volume you can do so by using the practise sheets below. You will have a choice of mild (easier) or hot (harder) and there are answers at the bottom of each set of questions so you can check - but make sure you don’t just copy the answers down. Remember to show your working out!


If you find the practises a bit tricky, have a go at the support task sheet!


When you feel you are confident complete the assessment questions - these are the “green sheets” you usually complete in class.


Make sure you send us your questions and/or your work. Enjoy.
