Measurement and Data
Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
1. Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a twocolumn table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...

This narrative document describes the progression of Geometric Measurement across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary geometric measurement. Among those are recognizing measurable attributes, comparing, connecting with number, estimating, and differentiating linear measurement from area and volume.

This page contains 26 application problems in measurement from the Port Angeles School District in Washington state. The problems ask students to write to explain their thinking about each problem using words, numbers or pictures. Links to state GLEs and revised standards are provided. Topics covered include money, length and perimeter, and weight.
Problem Set
In this lesson, students use historical nonstandard units (digits, hand, cubit, yard, foot, pace, fathom) to estimate the lengths of common objects and then measure using modern standard units. They will discover the usefulness of standardized measurement units and tools. An activity sheet (pdf), assessment options and other commentary are provided.
Lesson Plans
This activity helps students develop a sense of the relative size of quantities in the categories of temperature, speed, time duration and loudness. Learners rank their estimates of given measures in order from least to greatest and justify their decisions. Students are encouraged to do research and carry out experiments when possible. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, ideas for extension and support, and links to related activities.
Activity
This problem from the Figure This! collection of NCTM asks the student to make measurements and consider proportion and scaling to estimate the length of the Statue's nose, given the length of her arm. The activity includes links to a hint, the solution, related math questions, and additional resources.
Activity
This document provides descriptions and examples of what each Mathematics Common Core standard means a Grade Four student will know, understand and be able to do. This "unpacking" of the standards provides instructional guidelines and was developed to assist North Carolina educators teach the Mathematics Common Core (Standard Course of Study).
Reference Materials
This Flash applet provides a virtual medium for measuring capacity in everyday containers. Students empty a container into a graduated one-liter beaker and then select the correct measurement in milliliters (multiples of 100). Answers are checked and there is an option of showing scale numbers on the beaker.
