Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 5
Domain-Subdomain: Measurement and Data
Cluster: Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition. (Major Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
