Because you're not signed in, this is a just brief preview of the video.

This contains a teacher overview as well as 5 videos for students to work through independently. Learn more about student access here.

In this video, students will calculate the volume of laptops using the formula for the volume of a rectangular prism. First, they’ll find five laptops from across history and calculate their volumes. Then, they’ll draw them in 3D using some cool grid paper. Students will then explore equivalent volumes before finally building a scale model of a laptop.
