**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.
