Solve real-world 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 real-world 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.
