Measurement and Data
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.
Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures, and understand concepts of volume measurement. [5-MD3]
A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, and can be used to measure volume. [5-MD3a]
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-MD3b]
Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units. [5-MD4]
