Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they can…

  • model volume by filling a rectangular prism with unit cubes of fractional length and use the model to determine volume of the prism.

  • discover that filling a solid with cubes and counting them gives the same result as using the volume formula.

  • reason that finding volume is the same process and uses the same formulas whether the edge lengths are whole units or fractional units.

  • solve real-world volume problems where one of the edge lengths is a fractional unit.

  • visualize how nets relate to three-dimensional figures.

  • use a model to determine surface area.

  • understand how are of two-dimensional figures relates to surface area of three-dimensional figures.

  • find repetition of dimensions in some of the nets and explain them in terms of the structure of the three-dimensional figure (i.e. student may say or write: ā€œIn this rectangular prism, the top and bottom polygons are the same and so are the front and back. That makes sense because the box has to stand up straight.ā€)

  • solve real-world and mathematical problems involving surface area.
