Lesson #  Lesson Title  Notes 

1  Unit Cubes and Volume  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: How can filling a space with unit cubes help you determine the volume? What three dimensions are used to determine volume? Can multiple figures have the same volume? 
2  Volume Formula  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What formula is used to calculate the volume of a shape? What are other strategies for finding volume? 
3  Volume vs. Area  Discuss with your student what volume and area have in common. 
4  Rectangular Prism Volume  In their math notebook, have your student describe how to find the volume of a rectangular prism. 
5  Composite Figures  
6  Solving for Missing Dimensions  Have your student explain how they can calculate volume when a dimension is missing in their math notebook. 
7  RealWorld Volume Applications  In their math notebook have students describe how volume is used in everyday life. 
8  The Coordinate Plane  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What is the coordinate plane? What are perpendicular lines? How do you use the coordinate plane? What are the two axes of the coordinate plane? What are the quadrants of the coordinate plane? How do you set up a coordinate plane? 
9  Locating Coordinate Points  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: How do you identify points on the coordinate plane? What is an ordered pair? 
10  Plotting Ordered Pairs  Ask your student to explain how to plot points on a coordinate plane. 
Module Guiding Questions:
When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.

Module Video Questions:
When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.

Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:
Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:
 What is the main idea?
 What are three things new you learned?
 How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
