Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
Understand how to use a one-dimensional measurement tool, like a ruler, to make two-dimensional measurements of area.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
Use the additive nature of volume to 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.
Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
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.
A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using 𝑛 unit cubes is said to have a volume of 𝑛𝑛 cubic units.
