5.MD.2. Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.

Dunk Tank is a maththemed game show created by the producers of Cyberchase and starring Harry from Cyberchase For Real. Using a combination of video and interactive gaming, each program addresses a single topic in the 6th grade math curriculum and s...tudents compete with themselves for high scores. Dunk Tank is an independent learning experience for students to complete in 1530 minutes, depending on their proficiency, and can also be used to support teacherled instruction. In this interactive, Harry explains key concepts about liquid volume, including standard units of measure (what they are, when to use them, how to convert between them). Students play Fill It Up, a minigame that challenges students use pints, quarts and gallons to exactly fill large containers whose volume is marked only in cups; watch a comic video about the importance of measuring carefully with standard units when baking; and answer other questions designed to help them further their understanding of liquid volume. Students can access support using a glossary, defining key math terms, and a menu of short segments to rewatch.
