This includes several types of volume tasks! Volume should be introduced through exploration and building. Once students have explored volume on a concrete level, these tasks allow students to apply the concept. Visuals are included for many examples.
Introduction and Review:
*Class examples (designed for small group practice and whole group discussion) are given for many types of problems. There are 12 of these tasks.
*There are 26 task cards with questions on a variety of levels. You can differentiate specific tasks based on your observations and formative assessments. (These are also provided in a format with less color and graphics for those who want to save ink.)
*Answer keys for task cards and a student recording sheet allow students to self-assess task cards and share information with the teacher.
*A ‘ticket out the door’ gives the teacher information to form differentiated groups.
*A daily grade formative assessment is provided.
I hope these will be helpful! Please let me know if you have comments, questions, or suggestions! I appreciate your feedback!
Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
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.
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.
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.
