Year 6 Volume of Cuboids Maths Challenge

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 6 Volume of Cuboids Maths Challenge, aims to develop pupils’ understanding of calculating the volume of different cuboids. Pupils will need to use the measurements of different parcels to figure out the total volume for a set of deliveries. Pupils will then use this information to find out how many trips will need to be made altogether for the deliveries.
