Unify all familiar area and volume formulas, both two- and three-dimensional, as one versatile idea: scale factor × base × height. Engage in interactive whiteboard and hands-on activities that make this idea intuitive to students. See how these compelling activities can also deceive the eye and mind, facilitating proof through ideas that are accessible in middle school.
