## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 3 programme of study
• KS2.Y3.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y3.G.PS.1 – Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them

• ##### Year 5 programme of study
• KS2.Y5.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y5.G.PS.1 – Identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations

• ##### Year 6 programme of study
• KS2.Y6.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y6.G.PS.2 – Recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 1.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 1.G.2 – Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.(Students do not need to learn formal names such as “right rectangular prism.”)

• ##### 5.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 5.MD.3 – Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.

• 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.

• 5.MD.5 – Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.

• 5.MD.5.c – 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.
