Measurement Strand

Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:

5.M.1 Apply the concepts of perimeter and area to the solution of problems involving triangles and rectangles. Apply formulas where appropriate.

5.M.2 Identify, measure, describe, classify, and draw various angles. Draw triangles given two sides and the angle between them, or given two angles and the side between them, e.g., draw a triangle with one right angle and two sides congruent.

5.M.3 Solve problems involving simple unit conversions within a system of measurement.

5.M.4 Find volumes and surface areas of rectangular prisms.
This standard is intentionally the same as standard 6.M.6.

5.M.5 Find the sum of the measures of the interior angles in triangles by measuring the angles, and without measuring the angles.
