Standard Component
  
Analyze and describe the properties of prisms and pyramids.
  
Understand the concept of volume and recognize that volume is measured in cubic units.
a. Describe a cube with edge length 1 unit as a “unit cube” and is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume and can be used to measure volume.
b. Understand that the volume of a right rectangular prism can be found by stacking multiple layers of the base.
  
Apply the formula V = l x w x h and V = B x h for volume of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths.
