Australian Mathematics Teacher, v74 n1 p22-30 2018
This study investigated middle school teachers' knowledge of students' misconceptions and the sources of these misconceptions related to the volume of prisms. This case study investigated four middle school teachers who taught 8th grade students in Ankara (Turkey). Based on the analysis of the data, two misconceptions related to the volume of prisms were identified: the volume of a prism is composed of the total number of visible unit cubes, and the volume of a prism is the total area of its faces.
