# Everyday Math Unit 1: Area and Volume

Description:

**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.
