Standard 5: The Mathematical World
  • Numbers: 3.5.1 Select and use appropriate measuring units, such as centimeters (cm) and meters (m), grams (g) and kilograms (kg), and degrees Celsius (°C).
  • Activity modeled after
  • Appropriate: Suitable for a particular condition, occasion, or place; fitting.
  • Measurement: The dimension, quantity, or capacity determined by measuring
  • Units: What the measurement is being done in, (example: inches)
background info
Background Info
  • Knowing when to use measurements appropriately is important.
  • Here we will explore the importance of measurements and how to use them properly.

  • Measurements are what is missing!
  • Why do we need measurements?
  • Did those sentences make sense without measurements?

Much Better!
  • These sentences make a lot more sense when we add in measurements!
    • The worm is 3 inches long.
    • Katie’s plant grew 11 centimeters tall.
    • The school is 22 feet tall.
    • Yesterday it was 34° outside.

let s compare our lists
Let’s compare our lists…
  • Centimeters (cm)
  • Meters (m)
  • Inches (in)
  • Feet (ft)
  • Yards (yd)
  • Millimeters (mm)
  • Miles (mi)
  • Kilometers (km)
  • Pounds (lbs)
  • Grams (g)
  • Milligrams (mg)
  • Tons (T)
let s get started
Let’s get started!
  • Those were just some examples of measurements you may know how to use. There may be more.
  • With all of those how do you know when to use which one?
  • Units for measuring in lengths include: millimeters, centimeters, inches, meters, feet, yards, miles, and kilometers.
  • Units in yellow are good for small measurements.
  • Units in blue are good for medium measurements.
  • Units in purple are used for long distances.
medium measurements
Medium Measurements
  • Feet, yards, and meters are used to measure things that aren’t big or small. Inches are also used in some cases.
  • Examples are:
      • The length of a car
      • The height of a tree
      • The length of a sports field
small measurements
Small Measurements
  • Remember we commonly use millimeters, centimeters, and inches for these.
  • Example measurements include:
    • The width of a fingernail
    • The size of a pebble
    • The length of a pencil
long measurements
Long Measurements
  • Miles and kilometers are commonly used for measuring long distances.
  • Examples of long measurements include:
    • Length of a trip
    • Length of a road
weight measurements
Weight Measurements
  • Small weights are measured using milligrams or grams. (examples: the weight of a dime or pencil)
  • Medium weights are measured using pounds or kilograms. (examples: the weight of a person or animal)
  • Things that are heavy are usually measured in tons. (examples: trucks and cars)
let s practice
Let’s Practice
  • You have a penny. What measurements should you use to find its:
    • Weight?
    • Height? (edge)
    • Diameter?
  • Weight- measure weight in grams or milligrams
  • Edge height- millimeters would work best for this
  • Diameter- centimeters or inches would make the most sense here.
