2 Buenos Dias!

3 Today, you will take notes using a foldable:  Fold your paper “hot dog” style and leave about ¾ inch for a title strip.  Fold it in half the other way and half again so that you have 4 sections. FOLDABLE TITLE

4 TITLE: Measurements  Cut 3 times so you have 4 flaps.  Label each flap: mass, volume, length, & temperature Measurements

5 Foldable Con’t:  Under the top part of the flap you will draw, label, and color the instrument used to make the measurement  Under the bottom part of the flap you will copy definition and information about the base unit (copy BLACK text only). Measurements

6 …BUT FIRST: Background on SI Units Scientists use the metric system which is the international system (SI) of measurement. France was the 1 st country to adopt the metric system in

7 Standardization SI units were designed to provide a worldwide standard of physical measurement for science, industry, and commerce. SI was adopted worldwide in

8 Now, have your foldable ready to record your notes!

9 MASS 1. Definition: * Mass is the amount of matter in an object. 2. Base Unit: * for mass = gram (g); larger masses = kilogram (kg); smaller masses = milligram (mg) 8

10 MASS 3. Instrument: * Mass is measured using a

11 REMINDER about MASS The weight of an object can change but the mass remains the same. Weight is a measurement of force, and will change depending on gravity. 10

12 VOLUME 1. Definition: * Volume is the amount of space an object takes up 2. Base Unit: a) for liquid volume = liter (L) b) for solid volume = cubic meter (m 3 )

13 LIQUID VOLUME 3. Instrument: * Liquid Volume is measured using a beaker, graduated cylinder, or a flask

14 SOLID VOLUME 3. Instrument: * Solid volume is calculated measuring the sides with a metric ruler and then using the formula: L x W x H = V 3cm x 2cm x 4cm = 24cm 3

15 LENGTH 1. Definition: * Length is a measure of distance 2. Base Unit: * for length = meter (m); longer lengths = kilometers (km); shorter lengths = centimeters (cm) 3. Instrument: * Length is measured using a metric ruler; for very large distances, we use the light year

16 TEMPERATURE 1. Definition: * Temperature is the measurement of the amount of heat in an object 2. Base Unit: * for temperature = Celsius ( ⁰ C); very hot or very cold temperatures are measured in degrees Kelvin (K) 3. Instrument: * Temperature is measured using a thermometer
