Computation Techniques for the Volume of a Tetrahedron
Srinivasan, V. K.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n7 p979-990 2010
The purpose of this article is to discuss specific techniques for the computation of the volume of a tetrahedron. A few of them are taught in the undergraduate multivariable calculus courses. Few of them are found in text books on coordinate geometry and synthetic solid geometry. This article gathers many of these techniques so as to constitute a minor survey of a teaching-oriented article, useful to both students and teachers according to their needs in the classrooms.
