Standard 3.0 Knowledge of Measurement

Students will identify attributes, units, or systems of measurements or apply a variety of techniques, formulas, tools or technology for determining measurements.

Topic

A. Measurement Units

Indicator

  • 1. Read customary and metric measurement units
Objectives
  1. Read the scale on a ruler to identify length, in inches
  2. Tell time in intervals of 5 minutes using an analog clock
  3. Compare the same time on analog and digital clocks
  4. Read a thermometer to the nearest 5° (°F and °C) on a thermometer with a scale of 10° intervals
  5. Identify and compare the weight of objects to the nearest pound

Topic

B. Measurement Tools

Indicator

  • 1. Measure in customary and metric units
Objectives
  1. Measure length of objects and pictures of objects using a ruler or tape measure to the nearest inch, centimeter, and foot
  2. Measure capacity of objects using cup, pint, quart, liter, and gallon
  3. Measure objects to the nearest pound and kilogram
  4. Select and use appropriate units of measure for length/height, weight, and capacity

Topic

C. Applications in Measurement

Indicator

  • 1. Apply measurement concepts
Objectives
  1. Develop the concept of perimeter by counting units around a picture or geometric shape
  2. Develop the concept of area by counting square units within a picture or geometric shape

Indicator

Objective
  1. Recognize equivalent units of 12 inches = 1 foot

Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
