Today, I learned about volume and area! We first learned, then we had to make DIFFERENT rectangular prism using only 24 cubes, i made 6 DIFFERENT rectangular prism and i was right, there was only 6 DIFFERENT rectangular prism that can be made with 24 cubes. I did volume in 4th grade, i noticed that the volume in 5th grade is similar to the 4th grade volume learning but it is taught differently. At first it took me quite a long time because i didn't know what to do since i skipped school yesterday (i was sick), but i got it while Mrs. Johnson was explaining it.

Finding the different rectangular prism was easy because the trick is to find all the factors of 12 and 24 since we only can use 24 cubes to make the rectangular prism. This trick helped me a lot because when i knew the trick it took me very little time to find all the different rectangular prism. I only needed to found the base of the rectangular prism and build it, then i counted the height, layer, and volume (which i did not need to count because the question was "How many DIFFERENT rectangular prisms with 24 cubes?"). I really like learning about volume, it's fun!
