Component  5.MD.3.a:
A cube with side length 1 unit, called a "unit cube," is said to have "one cubic unit" of volume, and can be used to measure volume. 
Component  5.MD.3.b:
A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units.


Emphasis: MStandard  5.MD.4:
Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units. 

Component  5.MD.5.a:
Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with wholenumber side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base. Represent threefold wholenumber products as volumes, e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication. 
Component  5.MD.5.b:
Apply the formulas V = l * w * h and V = b * h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems. 
Component  5.MD.5.c:
Recognize volume as additive. Find volumes of solid figures composed of two nonoverlapping right rectangular prisms by adding the volumes of the nonoverlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
