Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving area, surface area and volume  Cluster 1 

Standard
6.G.1: Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special
quadrilaterals, and polygons by decomposing into triangles and other
shapes, apply these techniques in the context of solving realworld and
mathematical problems. 
Rectangle to Triangle Answers 6.G.1.a 
Area of Trapezoids Answers 6.G.1.b 
Standard
6.G.2: 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 volume is the same as would be
found by muliplying the edge lenghts of the prism. Apply the
formula V = l w h and V = bh to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fracitional edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems. 
Simple Volume Answers 6.G.2.a 
Packing Fractional Cubes Answers 6.G.2.b 
Standard
6.G.3: Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates
for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side
joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second
coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving
realworld and mathematical problems. 
Coordinate Plane Answers 6.G.3.a 
Plot X Axis Answers 6.G.3.b 
Standard 6.G.4: Represent threedimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.  Cube Net Answers 6.G.4.a 
Rectangular Prism Answers 6.G.4.b
