Team Maths Appeal (me and Bobby Seagull) have joined forces with the University of Oxford mathematician, Dr Tom Crawford (aka Tom Rocks Maths) to explore and teach topics from the GCSE Maths syllabus. We aim to show the world that maths is accessible to everyone!

In this episode you will learn the formulae to find the volume of 3D prisms including cubes, cuboids, cylinders. Bobby introduces the topic, Tom explains a memorisation technique for the formulae using his favourite fictional chocolate bars, and I share an interactive tool on GeoGebra – Direct links to each part below.

Here are suggestions of maths resources to consolidate your learning once you have watched our video. (You can also find the web links to these resources in the YouTube video description).

Bobby and I will answer questions from you on Thursday 30^{th} April 2020 in a recorded video, which will be posted on Instagram Friday 1^{st} May 2020 at 1pm.

Tom will answer questions from you on Friday 1^{st} May 2020 in a live-streaming YouTube session at 4pm
