IB Maths: Applications & Interpretation: Pyramid Volume

This activity is about understanding the relationship between the volume of a pyramid and the volume of an associated prism. We know that volume of a pyramid is given by one third of the area of the base multiplied by the perpendicular height.\(V\quad =\quad \frac { 1 }{ 3 } \quad \times \quad area\quad of\quad base\quad \times \quad perpendicular\quad height\)This activity is about exploring why and hopefully adding some depth of understanding to the use of this formula. It is a very practical hands on activity that involves...
