Common Core For Grade 5

Videos, examples, solutions, and lessons to help Grade 5 students learn to recognize
volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of
volume measurement.

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.

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.

Students learn to measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.

Common Core: 5.MD.3 and 5.MD.4

### Suggested Learning Targets

### Understand volume (5.MD.3)

### Measuring Volume by Counting Unit Cubes (5.MD.3ab)

This video aligns with Common Core State Standard 5.MD.3ab: 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. 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.

### Finding Volume Using Unit Cubes - 5.MD.4

In this video, students learn about measuring volume by counting
