Lesson objective: Apply an understanding of the volume formula base x height to determine the dimensions of a shipping container.
This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of volume formulas to a real-life situation. Students are asked to determine the dimensions of a shipping container packed with juice boxes that are not unit cubes.
Key Concept students will use:
Skills students will use:
Students engage in Mathematical Practice 7 (Look for and make use of structure) as they connect the structure to multiplicative reasoning, recognizing the iteration of layers when computing volume.
Students engage in Mathematical Practice 6 (Attend to precision) as they specify and differentiate between units of measure (unit, square unit, cubic unit). Conversions are carried out accurately within customary and metric systems.
Key vocabulary:
