Using the example of differently shaped fish tanks, Fran and Dave show how to calculate volumes, in this fun video for use in KS4 maths lessons.
Fran explains to Dave what a prism is and using some vivid graphics, how to work out the volume of both a cuboid and cylinder. This comes in handy when Fran wants to find a fish tank for her brother.
Dave finds a rather slow, but accurate way of working out the volume of a rectangular fish tank, whilst Fran shares a formula to make it much easier. Volume = Cross-sectional area x Height.
