Unit 1: Introduction to and Problem Solving with Volume

Hey Students and Families! 
It's Mr. V here and I wanted to welcome you to my tutorial of unit 1 for 5th grade! I look forward to a wonderful year with you guys and I know that we will learn loads of wonderful mathematics!! Let's dig in our heels and get to work. 

In this tutorial I will post a link to my youtube channel in which I talk about volume and what it means to determine the volume of solid figures. Please feel free to comment on the video any questions you may have. 

Also, I will have a showme tutorial posted that will express to you exactly how we use the volume formula to determine the volume of a rectangular prism, as well as an irregular three dimensional figure. 

And remember... MATH IS COOL!!  -Mr. V
