This award-winning series helps students to build confidence in their ability to "do math" and develop the knowledge and skills required to become mathematically literate. This program provides an overview of measurement. The importance of standardizing measurement units is discussed from a historical perspective. The metric system is discussed at length. Measures of distance, mass and capacity are discussed. The consistent use of prefixes such as milli, centi, and kilo are investigated. Measurement of area, volume and temperature are presented. Special measurements such as the light year and the acre are discussed. Finally, measurement of rates such as miles per hour, points per game, and beats per minute is discussed. Students will learn to define the meaning of prefixes milli, centi, kilo and to select the appropriate unit to measure the area or volume of common items.
