This worksheets meets Common Core Standard 5.MD.5.b (see below). Students are asked to find the volume of various real-life rectangular prisms. Some problems are simple and only require students to plug the dimensions into the formula V = l × w × h. Other problems require students to find the volume of irregularly-shaped items using water displacement.
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate
volume to multiplication and to addition.
5.MD.5 Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
b. Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for rectangular
prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with wholenumber
edge lengths in the context of solving real world and
