Let’s assume we know 24 inch cubes will fit in this box .

Suppose we double its length .

How many inch cubes would fit in this new box?

How many inch cubes would fit if we doubled the width?

How about if we doubled the height?

Make a general statement about what you see happening.

What would happen to the number of inch cubes if we doubled two dimensions, say the length and the width?

or the length and the height? or the width and the height?

Write a general statement about what you see happening.

Suppose we double all three dimensions. How many inch cubes would this box now contain?

Explain how you arrived at this number.

Try making different size boxes by changing the dimensions as indicated below. Fill in the table.

*Explain in words what's happening. If you want, you may use a sketch to help.

 If the height is: & the length is: & the width is: the # of cubes will be: Tripled Tripled Tripled times as big Doubled Tripled Unchanged times as big Quadrupled Doubled Halved times as big
