Learn the Customary and Metric Measurement Systems!
Measurement determines the size, amount, or degree of something by comparing it to a standard unit of measurement. Knowledge about measurement is an important math concept that children need to learn as it applies to the everyday functions of society. Whether determining how tall you are, figuring out how long it takes to get somewhere, or finding the depth of a pool - measurement plays a key factor in everyday life - at school, work, play, and home.
Math Course 4, Basic Measurement: Step by Step addresses the major ideas of measurement by identifying measurable properties – length, area, volume, time, and temperature. Students explore the standard units of measurement for both the customary and metric measurement systems, the conversion between units, and estimation techniques for regular and irregular shapes.
