(please note that i do occasionally jungle in 5v5's with this build)
Start off the game with an Amplifying Tome and a mana pot. This will give you 24 AP at lvl 1 with the runes. On your first trip back to buy you're gonna want to have enough gold for your boots and to upgrade the tome to a sheen. This will enable you to do a good bit of extra damage while farming or fighting at this point in the game.

Since sheen converts 80% of AP to AD after a spell Lich Bane is not that important yet, so after obtaining a Sheen build an emblem of valour for team-wide life steal. After a few kills, or time spent jungling, finish building the Lich Bane and Stark's and begin building a Nashor's Tooth, beginning with the Stinger for atk speed. Nashor's tooth is a good item for this build considering it gives AP, Cooldown reduction, and attack speed, so it allows you to recast Alpha strike faster triggering your Lich Bane's passive, and later on will allow you to keep stacks on your Guinsoo's. Lastly in the build, is a Youmuu's Ghost Blade, which basically gives master yi a 2nd ult when activated.

During team fights, since Master Yi does not have the highest survivability with this build, you will not want to go in first, but wait for someone to initiate, then alpha strike in. If you begin to get focused, being a highly AP based build, you will be able to semi-tank with Meditate while your team attacks. after meditate finishes, make yourself alpha strike again and continue attacking (considering you do not die).

(Jungling with master yi)
While jungling with him is not the easiest thing in the world, i have done it before. You want to start at the wolves on your side of the map. Once again, you will start with an amplifying tome, but rather than a mana potion get a heath pot. After the wolves you will want to recall and get 2 of each potion, then continue to the golems. Wait until level 3 to kill the wraiths, and about 5 or 6 for the golem. you can try the lizard about lvl 6 but im not sure if you can kill it.
Like i said...not the easiest thing in the world, but it is possible
