1 Metric System, Tools, and Units MeasurementMetric System, Tools, and Units
2 Measurement Tools and Units Write the title :Measurement Tools and Units at the top of the page then divide the page into four equal parts, neatly.Measurement Tools and Units
3 Measurement Tools and Units Draw and name each of the following:RulerBeakerGraduated CylinderThermometerScale
4 Measurement Tools and Units Next to each of your pictures, write the UNITS and MEASUREMENT OF__ that are used by each tool…So, a ruler measures in millimeters, centimeters, decimeters, meters, and so forth. All these are meters.Next to the ruler write: Units = meters (m).Measurement of distance.
5 Measurement Tools and Units Beakers and graduated cylinders measure in units called…litersWrite: Units = liters (L)Measurement of volume.
6 Measurement Tools and Units Thermometers measure in units called…degreesWrite Units = degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit or Kelvin (‘C, ‘F, K)Measurement of temperature.
7 Measurement Tools and Units Scales measure in units called…gramsWrite Units = grams (g)Measurement of mass.
8 Measurement Tools and Units Your final chart should look similar to:Units = liters (L).Measurement of volumeRulerUnits = meters (m).Measurement of distanceBeakerGraduated CylinderThermometerUnits = grams (g).Measurement of massUnits = degrees (‘C, ‘F, K).Measurement of temperatureScale
9 The Ruler - distanceMost commonly on the ruler, you will measure in cm. These are visible in the picture here and they are about the width of your pinky.This side is inches. We DO NOT USE THESE.Between each cm is 10 mm. They are he tiny lines about the thickness of your nail.
10 The Beaker and Graduated Cylinder - volume Recall that we use the beaker for less precise measurements and the graduated cylinder for more exact measurements because it measures in smaller increments.
11 The Beaker and Graduated Cylinder - volume Also, we always use the ___________ to fill up the ____________________.Notice these measure in mL.On the graduated cylinder look at the bottom of the curve called the ___________.beakergraduated cylindermeniscus
12 Scale - massThis particular scale measures in g.
13 Thermometer - degreesYou’ll see that the classroom thermometer measures in ‘C and ‘F.We will most commonly talk about ‘C.
