Measurement, Perimeter, Area In your groups, make a list of: –All the measurement conversions you know; –All the perimeter and area formulas you know.

What is measurement? A measurement is determined by the number of repeated units needed to fill a specific length, time, area, volume, weight, capacity, temperature, etc. The units we are accustomed to using are inches, seconds, square feet, cubic centimeters, pounds, tablespoons or Liters, degrees Fahrenheit, etc.

Systems of Measurement Time: Length: Liquid Capacity: Dry Capacity: Weight: Temperature:

Conversions you should know! 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon; 2 tablespoons = 1 liquid ounce; 8 liquid ounces = 1 cup; 2 cups = 1 pint; 2 pints = 1 quart; 4 quarts = 1 gallon 16 ounces = 1 pound; 2000 pounds = 1 ton.

Conversions you should know! 60 seconds = 1 minute; 60 minutes = 1 hour; 24 hours = 1 day 12 inches = 1 foot; 3 feet = 1 yard; 5280 feet = 1760 yards = 1 mile Freezing: 32˚F = 0˚C; Boiling: 212˚F = 100˚C; Random: -40˚F = -40˚C

Metric vs. Customary Kilo Hecto Deka Unit Deci Centi Milli meter Liter gram As you move to smaller units, there are more per unit, so multiply by 10. As you move to larger units, there are fewer per unit, so divide by 10. Ex: 56 mm = _____ m; 95 kg = _____ g; 39 L = _____ mL

Common Conversions 1 inch is exactly 2.54 cm 1 meter is about 39 in. 1 mile is about 1.6 km 1 kilometer is about 0.6 miles 1 mL is about 1/4 teaspoon of water 1 Liter is about a quart. 1 mg is about the weight of a strand of hair. 1 gram is about the weight of a raisin or small paperclip. 1 kilogram is about 2.2 pounds.
