Today I partnered with Gakuto and to find the volume of any 3D object. We decided to find the volume of a laptop and a dictionary.
First, we used a ruler to measure the length was, width and height. We first measured the computer. The height was 0.8 inches, the length was 9.1 inches and the width is 12.8 inches. We multiplied them and got the volume 93.184 cubic inches!
We then tried to find the volume of a Merriam Webster’s Dictionary and Thesaurus. The height was 2.2 inches, the width was 9.5 inches, and the length was 4.15. We multiplied it and got volume of 86.735 cubic inches
We have learnt how to measure a 2D shape a few weeks ago, and then a 3D shape but today, we measured a real 3D thing! Today, I learnt how to measure a 3 dimensional shape with a ruler!
We had lots of fun today!

ANDJANI AND I wanted to measure the volume of the calculator box.
Andjani was very precise and I am glad to have a partner like her. I was just helping her. After we were done measuring the height, length and width, we had to calculate. I finish counting the total of the volume. My answer was 6220.5 cm3. But I had to make sure if the answer was correct so I used my calculator to checked if I was correct. So I checked and I was correct. I checked if Andjani was alright but she had trouble so I had helped her. I told what she missed and once she knows she was very good. But she was still a little bit confused but then she got it in the end. I thinks she is a very fast learner.
I needed to find the volume for a 3d object. I selected a cupboard in our classroom by myself and here is how I found the volume:
Firstly I measured the bottom to get the width/breadth and it was 92 cm. I measured it using a meter stick. After that I measured the sides which was the length.
I measured the top part of the side because the bottom was covered by tables. the length was 43 cm.
Lastly I measured the height and it was 83 cm.
The volume of our cupboard is 328348 cubic centimeter.
That means that it has a lot of space
If I convert 328348 cm3 to m3 it will become 3283.48 m3
F.Y.I I did everything on my head.
1. I divided 328348 by 100 because 100 cm what equal to 1 m and I wanted to convert the centimeter to meter.
