MeasurementMeasurement makes quantitative
observations about objects, events, or systems. The goal is to help students
use tools of measurement and measurement systems and to achieve understandings
of scales and rates.

 Observe and measure change.
 Compare two or more objects using direct comparisons of measurement
(e.g., shorter, longer, taller, heavier, and lighter).
 Use both standard units of measurement (e.g., inches and centimeters
,)
and nonstandard units of measurement (e.g., string and paper clips).
 Use appropriate measurement systems for different purposes.

Second 
Measure a change using appropriate tools and
units of measurement. 
 Objects can be used to compare other objects.
 Quantitative estimates of familiar lengths, weights, and time intervals
can be confirmed by measurement.
 Measurement is a way of detecting change.
 Time is the measurement of years divided into seconds, minutes, hours,
days, weeks, months, decades, centuries.
 Linear measurement is the distance between two points.
 Volume is the measurement of space an object occupies.
 Area measures the surface of an object.
 A standard unit of measurement helps communication.
 Standard units include:
 time seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades,
centuries.
 volume ml, l, cup, pint, quart, gallon
 mass g, kg, pounds, ounces, tons
 linear cm, m, km, inch, foot, yard, mile
 temperature degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit
 Rate is based on time
 When the thermometer goes up the temperature is hotter.
 Measurement helps in making better observations.
 Rulers are used to measure linear measurement.
 Scales measure mass and weight.
 Measuring cups measure volume
 Measurements can be compared.
 Measurement is used in everyday life (recipes, plans, designing, building)

 All measurement is relative to a unit, usually a standard unit.
 Measurement helps in making more accurate observation
 Measurement is a way of detecting change.

 Quantitative estimates of familiar lengths, weights, and time intervals

 Linear measurement is the distance between two points. Common sandard
units of linear measurement include: cm, m, km, inch, foot, yard, mile.
 Rulers are used to measure linear measurement.
 Time is the measurement of years divided into seconds, minutes, hours,
days, weeks, months, decades, centuries.
 Common standard units of time include: seconds, minutes, hours, days,
weeks, months, years, decades, centuries.
 Volume is the measurement of space an object occupies. Common standard
units of volume include: ml, l, cup, pint, quart, gallon.
 Measuring cups measure volume
 Volume can be calculated from linear measurements.
 Volume can be calculated from area and linear measurements.
 Area measures the surface of an object. Common standard units of area
are square cm, m, km, ft. yds. miles
 Mass is the measure of how much matter is in a particular object or
particular space. Common standard units of mass include: g, kg, pounds,
ounces, tons.
 Scales measure mass and weight.
 When the thermometer goes up the temperature is hotter.
 Temperature is the measure of how hot or cold an object is. Common
standar units of temperature are degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit
 Rate is based on time

Fifth 
 Select and use appropriate measurement units.
 Apply English and metric systems of measurements.

 Measurements and computations can be checked by comparing them to
typical values.
 Often the best way to tell what is happening during a change is to
make a table or graph of measurements.
