Definition of MeasurementThe definition of measurement isusing accuracy and length to measurethe width or the volume or time andangles.
How we useMeasurement in our lifeWe use measurement in our life so we can tell the time,measure how big things are, measure angles, to tell weightand length, measure the amount of things we need andmeasuring temperature.
Measuring toolsTools to measure the length and the width: ruler, measuring tape.Tools that measure the amount and capacity: measuring cups.Tools that measure angles: protractor.Tools that measure the weight: scale.Tools that measure temperature: thermometer.Other measuring tools: seismograph.
Measurement ConversionsHere are some measurement conversion examples:Millimeters to centimetersMiles to kilometersMinutes to hoursSeconds to minutesFeet to metersKilograms to poundsCelsius to fahrenheit
Measurement andMaterials connection Materials have a connection with measurement because you can use some materials to measure length, width and space. = 5.9 cm
Different measurement usedIn measurement we have different types of measurement (see inslide 5) used for measuring mass, volume, length, width,temperature, time and accuracy. The list is down hereKilometers, miles, meters, centimeters, feet= length and width.Celsius, fahrenheit= temperature. Hours, minutes, seconds=time. Degrees= accuracy.
Measurement symbolsIn measurement, we usually use measurement symbols to tellkilometers, centimeters, millimeters, miles and fahrenheit.Here we have some symbols representing kilometers, meters,fahrenheit and millimeters: Km, cm, ˚F, mm, m.
