Volume is the measurement of space occupied in three dimensions. Practice calculating the volume of 3-D shapes using a variety of techniques and with real-life examples through a series of engaging problems and questions.
Students will begin to calculate volume of different rectangular prisms using base ten cubes and then transition to using the formula V = L x W x H. Students will then practice using the legendary fifth grade activity, Cootie Catchers.
Calculating the volume of rectangular prisms is a new skill that is introduced in 5th grade. Students will apply mathematical formulas to find the volume of different kinds of figures and also determine the volume of a figure composed of two connected rectangular prisms. Learners will also work with other kinds of measurement when they make larger or smaller versions of figures (to scale) and learn to convert measurements.
Strengthen your students' understanding of cubic units and volume! They'll solve a realistic problem and explain key ideas about volume. Use this lesson on its own or use it as support for the lesson Volume and a Building.
This worksheet will challenge students’ understanding of volume and the equation l x w x h = V. Then, once they solve the equation have them draw the 3-D objects. The objects will all be rectangular prisms.
Have you ever shaken a present and tried to guess what might be inside? With this worksheet your students will calculate the volume of Christmas presents to make logical guesses as to what might fit inside the box.
Pump up the volume! Learn how to find the volume of a shape or an item with our resources on volume formula. Once your kid learns the formula for volume, they'll be able to move forward with other geometry concepts, like area or perimeter. Fire up an online exercise, or try an activity to put the volume formula to use in the real world.
Volume involves physical space, so for some kids, it can be hard to conceptualize. Help your geometry student make sense of volume with these resources that help kids master the volume formula for different 3D shapes. Volume is a way of saying Write out some equations with a downloadable worksheet or workbook, or take it into the real world with a hands-on activity that explores volume in everyday objects. Run through an online exercises, or wrap some measuring tape around a basketball or other items. All our content is aligned with national education standards, and it's all looked over by a team of teachers and other education experts -- so even if measuring a basketball seems silly, trust us, it works! Before kids can advance in geometry studies, they need to learn how to calculate volume. There's no better place to check that off your list than with our great learning materials.
