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!

## United States – Common Core State Standards

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

• 5.MD.4 – Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.

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

• 5.MD.3.b – A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units.

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

• 5.MD.5.b – Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole-number side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base. Represent threefold whole-number products as volumes, e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication.

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

• ACMMG084 – Use scaled instruments to measure and compare lengths, masses, capacities and temperatures

• ACMMG290 – Compare objects using familiar metric units of area and volume

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 5.GM.2 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes, considering the presence and/or absence of features simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

• ##### 6.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 6.GM.1 – Measure time and the attributes of objects, choosing appropriate standard units

• 6.GM.2 – Use arrays to find the areas of rectangles and the volumes of cuboids, given whole-number dimensions
