Academic Context and Connections
Finer grained standards that are part of this one
How are nets of three-dimensional figures used to find surface area?
What is the difference between what area measures and what volume measures?
This expectation supports the major work of the grade.
Model with mathematics.
In Grade 4, students solve problems involving measurement and converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit. In Grade 5, students understand concepts of volume, relate volume to multiplication and to addition, and graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
In Grade 7, students draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them, and solve real-world and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume. In Grade 8, students understand congruence and similarity and understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
Use appropriate tools strategically.
In Grade 6, this expectation connects with graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane and finding distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
