Volume and Measurment


Unit 6: Volume and Measurement


OVERVIEW:

In this unit students will:

• change units to related units within the same measurement system by multiplying or dividing using conversion factors.

• use line plots to display a data set of measurements that includes fractions.

• use operations to solve problems based on data displayed in a line plot.

• recognize volume as an attribute of three-dimensional space.

understand that volume can be measured by finding the total number of same size units of volume required to fill the space without gaps or overlaps

. • understand that a 1-unit by 1-unit by 1-unit cube is the standard unit for measuring volume.

• select appropriate units, strategies, and tools for solving problems that involve estimating and measuring volume.

• decompose three-dimensional shapes and find volumes of right rectangular prisms by viewing them as decomposed into layers of arrays of cubes.

• measure necessary attributes of shapes in order to determine volumes to solve real world and mathematical problems.

• communicate precisely by engaging in discussion about their reasoning using appropriate mathematical language.
