5.5.MD Measurement and Data

  • 5 Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.

    • 5.5.MD.1 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 within a cultural context, including those of Montana American Indians.

  • 5 Represent and interpret data.

  • 5 Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.

    • 5.5.MD.3 Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.

    • 5.5.MD.4 Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.

    • 5.5.MD.5 Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume within cultural contexts, including those of Montana American Indians.

      • 5.5.MD.5.a Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole-number side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base. Represent threefold whole-number products as volumes, e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication.

      • 5.5.MD.5.b Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems.

      • 5.5.MD.5.c Recognize volume as additive. Find volumes of solid figures composed of two non-overlapping right rectangular prisms by adding the volumes of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
