What is a Prism?
A prism is a three-dimensional figure with two congruent and parallel bases that are polygons and rectangular sides.

#### Slide 4 -Slide

Define what a prism is and provide examples.
How to Calculate Volume
The formula to calculate the volume of a prism is V = Bh, where B is the area of the base and h is the height of the prism.

#### Slide 5 -Slide

Explain the formula to calculate the volume of prisms and provide examples.
Different Types of Prisms
There are different types of prisms, such as rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, and hexagonal prisms.

#### Slide 6 -Slide

Explain the different types of prisms and provide examples.
Calculating Volume of Rectangular Prisms
To calculate the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the length, width, and height.

#### Slide 7 -Slide

Explain how to calculate the volume of rectangular prisms and provide examples.
Calculating Volume of Triangular Prisms
To calculate the volume of a triangular prism, multiply the area of the base by the height and divide by 2.

#### Slide 8 -Slide

Explain how to calculate the volume of triangular prisms and provide examples.
Calculating Volume of Hexagonal Prisms
To calculate the volume of a hexagonal prism, multiply the area of the base by the height and multiply by 3.

#### Slide 9 -Slide

Explain how to calculate the volume of hexagonal prisms and provide examples.
Build Your Own Aquarium
Using the knowledge you have learned, design and calculate the volume of your own aquarium.

#### Slide 10 -Slide

Provide instructions for students to design and calculate the volume of their own aquarium using a specific prism. Encourage creativity and problem-solving.
