2. Definition of MeasurementThe definition of measurement is usingaccuracy and length to measure the width orheight of an object. You can also use itfor measuring time and angles.
3. Measuring ToolsTools to measure length and width are rulers andmeasuring tape,Tools that measure amount and capacity: measuring cupsTools to measure angles: protractors and sextants.Units of length are used to measure areas and volumesTools to measure time: Watch or clock
4. Measurement Vocabulary Definitions mass- amount of matter an object contains weight- a measure of the effect gravity has on a object volume- measure of how much space it takes up destiny- measures how heavy something is for its size dimension- just a way to measure a geometric figure like length, width and depth
5. Metric SystemThe metric system is the most commonly used system inthe world. The easiest way to remember the mostcommonly used measurements are King Henry Doesn’tUsually Drink Chocolate Milk. King = Kilo, Henry =hecto, Doesn’t = deci, Usually = Usually, Drink =deka,Chocolate = Centi and Milk = milli.

7. Metic System Conversions1 mm = same amount of space as 1 cubic centimeter1 mile = 1760 yards1 mile = 5280 feet3 feet = 1 yard1 foot = 12 inches1 inch = 2.5 centimeter 5.9 cm= 59 mm1 meter = 100 centimeters
8. Time Conversions1 min = 60 seconds1 hr = 3600 seconds1 hr = 60 min1 day = 1440 min1 week = 168 hours1 fort night = 14 days12 months = 1 year
9. Other Factsmass always stays the same no matter where you areImperial System is older than the metric systemCalculate destiny by dividing objects mass by volumeIf object is solid, volume is measured in cubiccentimetersCalculate by multiplying length by width by height
10. Different Measurement SystemsThe main system we use is the metricsystem. Some other systems areimperial system and the englishsystem.
11. How measurementconnects with materials Materials and measurement connect because in order to make a material they may have to measure using centimeters or meters in order to find out how much of something they need.
