Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free volume and surface area of a cube worksheet of 30+ questions and answers
A cube is a 3D shape made from six identical square faces. As such, all of the side lengths of a cube are equal.
The volume of a cube is the amount of space inside the cube. The volume of a cube is found using the formula Volume = length * width * height. Volume is measured in cubic units, for example cm3.
The surface area of a cube is the sum of the areas of the faces of the cube. The surface area of a cube is found by finding the area of each face. The total surface area of the cube is the sum of these six areas. Surface area is measured in cm2.
The methods used to find the surface area and volume of cubes are the same as the methods used to find the surface area and volume of cuboids (also called rectangular prisms).
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional geometry worksheets, for example a 3D shapes worksheet or an area of a triangle worksheet.
For more teaching and learning support on Geometry our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
