Lesson Excerpt

Have you ever wondered how much space you take up in your house? You can find this out if you know certain dimensions about your home. This is especially true if your house is in a cube shape. All you need to do is figure out the volume.

The volume is the amount of space that is taken in up within three-dimensional objects. You may have already realized your home is three-dimensional.

The best representation of a three dimensional object you can use to find volume with is a cube. A cube is a three dimensional, spatial object with multiple lines, segments, and angles.

Here is a picture of a cube.

You have seen plenty of cubes in your life before. Not only are many homes cube shaped but here is a list of other things that are shaped like a cube that you have probably seen before:
