Students will demonstrate the concepts and skills that they have developed through these contexts and learning experiences related to volume of a rectangular based prism.

## Intentionalityâ€¦

The purpose of this assessment is for students to demonstrate their understanding of the following * big ideas*.

- Volume and capacity can be measured using non-standard and standard units;
- A rectangular prism has three views. It can be viewed from the top, front and side. Each of these three faces are two dimensional, with a length and a width;
- A rectangular prism has three dimensions, which can be described using three linear measurements; the length, the width and the height;
- The measurements of length, width, and height are used to determine volume;
- Volume can be determined by multiplying the area of the base by the height of the prism;
- Volume is related to the operations of multiplication and addition;
- A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using a
is said to have a volume of that**quantity of unit cubes**.**same quantity of cubic units**

The independent assessment will allow students to demonstrate concepts and skills related to the following learning goals:

- I will determine the volume of a rectangular prism using both standard and non-standard units.
- I will draw the top, front, and side view of a rectangular prism and label the dimensions.
- I will demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between the area of the base, the height of the prism and the total volume.
- I will determine an unknown dimension when given two of the three dimensions of a prism and the total volume.
- I will demonstrate the possible dimensions of a prism when given the total volume.

Students might write and/or model their answers independently. Students can also be interviewed by their teacher.

An alternative assessment opportunity should be offered if this tool will not successfully capture what the student knows, understands or can do.
