Common Core Math: Grade 5: Measurement & Data

In fifth grade, students convert between units of measurement within a measurement system, such as converting inches to feet or centimeters to meters. Students measure objects in fractions of a unit and present their data in line plots. Students also define and measure volumes of rectangular prisms, both by counting unit cubes and by applying the volume formula.
