Learning Objectives

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.3 Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.4 Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.5 Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.

Guiding Ideas

1) What is a unit measurement? 2) What is an area? 3) How do we find an area? 4) What is a rectangular prism? 5) How do we find all the blocks in a rectangular prism? 6) How can the formula for area help us find the formula of volume?

Performance Expectations

1) The student was able to explain volume as unit measurements that fill up a solid figure. 2) The student was able to derive a formula for volume. 3) The student was able to find the volume of rectangular prisms. 4) The student was able to find the volume of irregular shapes.
