Big Ideas: Volume is the product of the length, width, and height of a three dimensional solid. Volume is a unique attribute of solids that explains how much space an object takes up. This lesson builds on students' work with volume and 3-dimensional figures. The task asks students to look for a relationship between volume and multiplication by estimating and measuring the dimensions of everyday objects. Students then use tables to observe patterns in the findings. The task explores situations where students need to find volume by using multiplication, and it provides exposure to the connection between volume and the operations of multiplication. The mathematical content in this lesson is a pathway to an even deeper understanding of volume and multiplicative reasoning. Vocabulary: dimension, volume, expression Special Materials: Optional objects from around the classroom. Some possibilities may include, lunch boxes, tissue boxes, manipulative buckets, pencil boxes, etc. (3-dimensional items that would be appropriate to measure in inches)
