MATH

• WELCOME TO MATH!

Please open your Math textbook to page 282 and take a look at the list of measuring tools in the rectangle at the top of the page.

First, please read the first sentence in the display on page 282, and think about what it means.

If Jena used a yardstick to measure the length of her bed, she could measure to the nearest inch, foot, or yard, or if she used a meterstick she could measure to the nearest meter or centimeter.

I think, however, it may be easiest for Jena to use the tape measure simply because her bed is a large object. If she used the yardstick or meterstick, she would have to keep moving them and then add up the total measurement.

Please continue reading to see what Jena might choose to find the mass of her dog and how much water is in her fish tank.

Let's do problem numbers 1 - 6 together. Would you use the same tools I chose?
1. length of a classroom; tape measure (you could also use a meter or yardstick)
2. weight of an apple; scale or balance
3. amount of juice in a jug; cup or liter
4. height of a doorway; tape measure, meterstick, or yardstick
5. amount of water in a birdbath; cup, liter, or gallon
6. width of your thumbnail; ruler (in.) or ruler (cm)
