Measurement and Matter Unit 1
Meter The metric unit used to measure length
Metric ruler A tool used to measure length in meters and centimeters
Temperature A measure of how hot or cold something is
Thermometer A tool used to measure temperature either in Celsius or Fahrenheit
Mass The measure of how much matter “stuff” is in an object
Balance A tool used to measure mass
Graduated cylinder A tool used to measure the volume of liquids
Beaker Another type of container used to measure the volume of a liquid
Matter Anything that has mass and takes up space
Solid A state of matter in which a substance has a definite shape and definite volume
Liquid A state of matter in which a substance has a definite volume but not a definite shape
Gas A state of matter which a substance has no definite shape or volume
Physical Change A change in matter that does not change the substance itself
Microscope A tool that makes small objects appear larger
SI (metric) Measurements
↗ Measurement. Biology ↗ ‘BIO-’ means life ↗ Ex: biography ↗ -ology means the study of ↗ Ex: radiology ↗ What do you think BIOLOGY means?
DOES THIS MAKE SENSE TO YOU? THE METRIC SYSTEM The metric system is a system of measurement that is based on the number ten It is often used in science.
The Metric System. 1.The Metric System a. Standard system used by scientists. b. AKA S.I. (International System of Units) c. Decimal System based on the.
Reason 1: helps scientists share and compare their data/ results

Scientific Measurement Tools
Metric System Review. What is the system of measurement used in science by most people of the world?
Everything in the world is made of matter. Matter is anything that takes up space (V) and has mass (M). There are 3 states of matter. Really there are.
Measurement and Math SI Units Tools and Methods. Accuracy and Precision.
Length – the distance between 2 points Circumference – distance around a circular object.
Measurement Basics Physical Science. Why is it important to make accurate and precise measurements? Accuracy is the correctness of a measurement. If your.
The Metric System.
The Tools of Physical Science. Objectives Today we will learn –About graduated cylinders –About triple beam balances –About the three temperature scales.
Standard measure of a quantity Examples › Length = Meter (m) › Volume = Liter (L) › Mass = Grams (g) › Temperature = Celcius (°C)
Measurement The International System of Units (SI) is the standard system used around the world.
Science Tools How we do what we do!. Triple Beam Balance This is used to measure mass base unit is grams.
METRIC NOTES. WHO USES METRICS? The entire world uses the metric system except: the United States, Burma and Liberia. Used in science world-wide.
