A little fun… Start with a 1x2 rectangle. Find the area. Then consider a 2x4 rectangle. How have the sides changed? How has the area changed? Find the area of a 3x6 rectangle.How have the sides changed?How has the area changed? Make a table to try a few more of these, following the same pattern. What might explain this pattern? What if you tried this with rectangular prisms and volume? s 2s

5.MD.3 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. 5.MD.4 Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
5.MD.5 Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume. 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 three-fold whole-number products as volumes, e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication. 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. 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.

Toy Chest Generate possible dimensions for other toy chests that have a volume of 5400 square inches. Here is one: 12” high by 15” deep by 30” wide 9 x 15 x 30 = 4050
Each toy chest will be covered felt. Will the same amount of felt be needed for each chest regardless of the dimensions, since they all have the same volume?
Substituting values into formulas First, work through these problems. How much practice with 1a and 2a is needed? Would you give 1b/c and 2b as separate problems and not provide the formulas? How much support is needed to do 1b/c and 2b?
