We're Measurement Masters

By the end of the unit Mathematicians will be able to:

      • Estimate and measure standard inches, feet, yards, centimeters, and meters using the standard tool.

      • Describe the relationships among inch, foot, and yard. Describe the relationship between centimeter and meter.
      • Estimate and measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools, such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes to the nearest inch, foot, yard, centimeter and meter.
      • Understand that the length of an object does not change regardless of the units used. Measure the length of an object twice using length units of different lengths for the two measurements. Describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen
      • Estimate and measure volume (capacity) using cups and pints.
      • Estimate and measure the mass of objects in grams and kilograms and the volume of objects in quarts, gallons, and liters. Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step real-world problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units. (such as a beaker with a measurement scale, to represent the problem).
      • Choose and use appropriate units and tools to estimate and measure length, weight, and temperature. Estimate and measure length to a quarter-inc, weight in pounds, and temperature in degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit.
