SDAP 1.3
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on
fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots.
For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker
would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.

MG1.3
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.

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 threefold whole-number
products as volumes, e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication.
b. Apply the formulas V = l &times; w &times; h and V = b &times; 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.
