Mathematics
6.G.2 – Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Samples: Calculating the volume of rectangular prisms tutorial. Volume of a Cylinder.
Mathematics
5.MD.5 – Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
5.MD.5.c – 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.
Samples: Calculating the volume of rectangular prisms tutorial. Calculating the volume of rectangular prisms.
5.MD.5.d – 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.
Samples: Calculate the volume of a stack - record in cubic centimetres.
