This test covers the content in common core standard MCC5.MD 3-5. The test includes a mix of multiple choice and open response questions to challenge students.
I created this test with the implementation of the common core standards in Georgia in 2012-13. Despite teaching at a Title I school my students mastered the new rigorous standards exceedingly well, with 80% of my students exceeding state standards and all of my students meeting state standards.
This test is the 13th in a series of 14 tests which will cover all 5th grade common core standards. I have intentionally tried to keep the number of pages limited in order to help teachers who have copy limitations at their school. All of the tests in the series have between 14 and 20 questions, which I have found to be the perfect amount. It is enough to allow students to show mastery, without wasting classroom time with extended testing time.
The test can be used as a test, study guide or a practice worksheet depending on your needs. It would also work well in preparation for standardized testing. This test covers the standards listed below:
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.
5.MD.3- Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.
3.a – A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is
said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, and can be used to measure volume.
3.b – A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units.
5.MD.4 – Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
5.MD.5 – Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
5.a – Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole-number side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base. Represent threefold whole-number products as volumes, e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication.
5.b – Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems.
5.c – Recognize volume as additive. Find volumes of solid figures composed of two non-overlapping right rectangular prisms by adding the volumes of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
