I have created 54 questions that are grouped into 3 sets to allow for differentiation or targeting of specific volume skills. This activity was created to practice the Common Core Skill in a cooperative learning environment that allows students to share answers and justify their thinking.
*** This product is designed to practice the volume of rectangular prisms and cubes only as indicated by 5th grade Common Core ***
This was designed to practice counting cubes in a rectangular prisms (5.MD.4) and to practice both volume formulas V= l×w×h and V= b×h. Beginning in set 2, students will be asked to solve for a missing dimension, find the base of the prism, and even find composite volume of non overlapping rectangular prisms.
The answer keys are included to allow for student self checking.
You become the facilitator moving around the room discussing the mathematical principals they are exploring, or freeing you to work with students that are struggling.
One question card includes a decimal, therefore is a 6th grade card.
5. MD. 5 Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
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, equivalent by multiplying the height by the area of the base. Represent threefold whole number products as volume.
b. Apply the formula 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.
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.
