What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • 1 – Grade 1
    • 1.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 1.G.2 – Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.(Students do not need to learn formal names such as “right rectangular prism.”)

  • 5 – Grade 5
    • 5.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 5.MD.3 – Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.

          • 5.MD.3.a – A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, and can be used to measure volume.

        • 5.MD.5 – Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.

          • 5.MD.5.c – Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems.
