This video is another in the measurement and similarity module for the Year 11 General Mathematics course (units 1 and 2). Volume is a fun subject! How many celebrations are there in a tin? How much water is in a swimming pool? These questions and many more go unanswered in this video! But I do show you how to find the volume of prisms in an interesting and easy to understand way! There are lots of worked examples and easy to understand theory. I even cover the ideas of capacity for liquid (which is pretty much the same as volume!)
