Lessons 19 and 20 engage students in finding the volume of prisms and pyramids. Students use their equation skills to manipulate the volume formula to find missing measurements. Lesson 19 focuses on mathematical problems and Lesson 20 focuses on solving real-world problems. In Lesson 21, students will compare volume to surface area in real-world contexts.

The three shapes below represent the bases of three different prisms. Each grid is 1 unit x 1 unit, and each prism has a height of 10 units.
What is the volume of each prism?
A triangular prism has the measurements shown below.
If the volume of the prism is 270 cubic inches, what is the height of the prism?
Investigate the relationship between the volume of a prism and a pyramid with the same base.
