AK.5.MD. Measurement and Data
Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system and solve problems involving time.
5.MD.1. Identify, estimate measure, and convert equivalent measures within systems English length (inches, feet, yards, miles) weight (ounces, pounds, tons) volume (fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts, gallons) temperature (Fahrenheit) Metric length (millimeters, centimeters, meters, kilometers) volume (milliliters, liters), temperature (Celsius), (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems using appropriate tools.
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.
5.MD.5. Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.
5.MD.5.a. 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.MD.5.b. A solid figure that can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units.
5.MD.6. Estimate and measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and non-standard units.
