Concepts Covered

Recognize volume as an attribute of a solid figure.  A unit cube is a cube with a side length of 1 unit.

Build right rectangular prisms, count the cubes, and see that they are comprised of layers of cubes. Mentally decompose and recompose a right rectangular prism built from cubes into layers, each of which is composed of rows and columns.

Volume is comprised of layers of measurable units. Use standard units of measure such as cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and any unit that the problem presents.
