Check students understanding of the unit cube, regular and irregular volumes using unit cubes, calculation volume of rectangular prisms using V= l x w x h and V = B x h, and identify missing dimensions (length, width, or height) using the volume equation.
Plus, a little fun Q-Bert bonus activity!
Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement MCC5.MD.3
a. A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, andcan be used to measure volume MCC5.MD.3a
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 MCC5.MD.3b
Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft., and improvised units MCC5.MD.4
Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical
problems involving volume MCC5.MD.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 MCC5.MD.5a
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 solving real world and mathematical problems MCC5.MD.5b
