Common Core Standards covered in this unit:
5.MD.1. CONVERT among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system, and USE THESE CONVERSIONS in SOLVING multi-step, real world problems.
5.MD.3 RECOGNIZE volume as an attribute of solid figures and UNDERSTANDS concepts of volume measurement. 5.MD.4 MEASURE volumes by COUNTING unit cubes, USING cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units. 5.MD.5 RELATE volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and SOLVE real world and mathematical problems involving volume. |
Essential Questions:
- How can you compare and convert metric units using the place value system and powers of ten as a strategy?
- How can you solve elapsed time problems by converting units of time? - What is a unit cube and how can you use unit cubes to find the volume of a rectangular prism? - How can you use an everyday object to estimate the volume of a rectangular prism? - How can you use a formula to find the volume of rectangular prism? Show and explain. |
