Right block and volumes: 6th grade math lessons to download in PDF.

Math course on the right block and the calculation of volume in 6th grade (6ème). In this lesson, we will develop the definition and units of volume. Skills in geometry in space, the student will be able to draw in three dimensions but also to use the cavalier perspective in order to represent it through a diagram. The construction of the pattern and other solids will be required as well as the mastery of the formula to calculate the volume of a rectangular parallelepiped in geometry in the sixth grade. Conversions on volumes to master in order to develop calculation skills.

I. Volume of a right block

1.volume units


A unit of volume often used is the cubic meter ,(\,m^3\,\,).1 m^3 is the volume of a cube with an edge of 1 m.

Other units of volume are also used, in particular :

  • the cubic decimeter \,(\,dm^3\,\,) is the volume of a cube of 1 dm of edge;
  • the cubic centimeter \,(\,cm^3\,\,) is the volume of a cube of 1 cm of edge;
  • the cubic millimeter \,(\,mm^3\,\,) is the volume of a cube of 1 mm of edge;

2.volume of a rectangular parallelepiped by enumeration


We fill the rectangle parallelepiped below completely with cubes of 1 cm edge.

At the bottom of the cube, 5 rows of 4 small cubes are placed.

5×4=20, so there are 20 small cubes at the bottom of the right block.

In the right block, 3 of these layers are superimposed.

3×20=60, so the cube contains 60 cubes of edge 1 cm.

The volume of this rectangular parallelepiped is therefore 60 cm^3.

3.volume and formula

formula of the volume of a right block


A rectangular parallelepiped has length 12 cm, width 5 cm and height 7 cm.

The volume of this rectangular parallelepiped is :

V=12\times  \,5\times  \,7=420\,cm^3
