I liked seeing the video about the Big Dig in Boston because it really illustrated how a professional would use some of the information we learned here about volume in a real application. I hadnít thought about volume being used to determine how many cubic yards of dirt might need to be excavated from a construction site.

Other real-world uses for volume that I can think of include figuring the:

-volume of containers to know how much to fill them (aquariums, milk jugs, etc)
-amount of cement needed to fill molds for house foundations
-estimating how much mulch would be needed to cover flower beds

Can anyone add to this list?
