Subject: geometry/ volume

Many of my (high school) geometry students will memorize the volume formula V=lwh for a rectangular solid without understanding where it comes from. I have started breaking the job back down with sugar cubes into a flat base(lw) taken (h) times. The problem of 1000 is a 10x10x10 cube.
