Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Everyday Math Unit 1: Area and Volume


In this unit, students build on their prior work with area and explore ways to find the area of rectangles with fractional side lengths. Students also learn about volume as an attribute of solid figures. Using improvised units, they explore volume and build toward using cubic units and volume formulas.

Learning Targets: 
Find the area of rectangles.
Use tiling strategies to find the area of rectangles with fractional side lengths.
Understand that volume can be measured by the amount a container holds.
Find the volume of prisms using formulas.
Find the volume of a figure composed of two rectangular prisms. Apply strategies to find the volume of figures.
