MD.MA.5.MD. Measurement and Data (MD)
5.MD.A. Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.
5.MD.A.1. Supporting Standard: Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step real-world problems.
5.MD.A.1.2. Ability to distinguish between and select the appropriate units for length, mass, and volume (4.MD.A.1).
5.MD.A.1.4. Ability to use appropriate measuring tools for both systems (yardsticks/meter sticks, rulers (metric and customary), Measuring cups, etc.
5.MD.C. Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.
5.MD.C.3. Major Standard: Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement: A) A cube with side lengths 1 unit, called a “unit cube”, is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, and can be used to measure volume; B) A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units.
5.MD.C.3.2. Ability to understand the differences in liquid volume and solid volume. Liquid volume (4.MD.A.2) fills the three dimension space of a container and takes the shape of the container. Solid volume fills the space of a three-dimensional container by packing the container with solid units.
