Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Big Idea:What is going on in the problem? What are you trying to figure out? How can you use what you know to solve the problem? Students apply the skills they have learned throughout Unit 7 to complex tasks.
