Measures of Center and Variation
In groups, mathematicians make paper strip models of their pencil lengths, then use the data to find the centers of measure. They also use a Cuisenaire® rod set and Unifix® cubes to determine mean and median. Finally, they use an interactive, Plop It!

Introduction to Angle Measure
An all-encompassing package provides video clips that demonstrate real-world activities that have to do with angles. After watching the Cyberchase cartoons, learners discuss why a "v" shape is used to measure a turn. A pair of vital worksheets and different-leveled assessments are provided through embedded links.

Measuring the Area of a Circle
When mathematical errors happen, part of the learning is to figure out how it affects the rest of your calculations. The activity has your mathematicians solving for the area of a circular pipe and taking into consideration any errors that may happen with measuring.

Measuring Mass Using Non-Standard Units of Measurement
Students explore mass measurements. In this non-standard unit measurement lesson, students use non-standard units of measurement to find the weight of different objects. They work in small groups and complete a variety of measuring activities.

Kids list the different materials that can be used in measuring the lengths of objects (standard and nonstandard units of measurement). They directly compare the lengths of given objects and recognize the various units of measurements. They then compare lengths of objects in the classroom and measure objects by estimating their lengths.

Measure for Measure: Lenghts and Heights
Students investigate the importance of accurate measurements. In this sixth through eighth grade geometry lesson, students view Measure for Measure: Lengths and Heights as they explore the history of measurement. Students use their own feet as a standard measure and then measure and compare distances.

Measuring Area Using Non-Standard Units
Learners examine area. In this area measurement activity, students use non-standard units of measurement to find the area of various objects in the classroom. They work in small groups on different measurement activities and present their findings to the class upon completion.

Measure a Tree
Young mathematicians explore data collection and mathematical problem solving. They will work in cooperative groups to determine the height of a tree by measuring several predetermined distances on the ground. They will use the data collected to set up mathematical ratio problems and calculate the height of the tree.
