MEASUREMENT
 Mt. Measurement Climb to the top of Mt. Measurement. Don't know if you can? Maybe you should measure the distance to the top! MEASUREMENT QUANTITIES Formulas for finding 2 and 3 Dimensional Shapes Learn to use concrete and graphic models to derive formulas for finding perimeter, area, surface area, circumference, and volume of two- and three-dimensional shapes, including rectangular solids and cylinders. Finding Rates, Distance, Time and Angle Learn use concrete and graphic models to derive formulas for finding rates, distance, time and angle measures. Changes in a Figure Understand and describe how the change of a figure in such dimensions as length, width, height, or radius affects its other measurements such as perimeter, area, surface area, and volume. Scale Drawings Learn to construct, interpret and use scale drawings such as those based on number lines and maps to solve real-world problems.   SYSTEMS OF MEASUREMENT Measuring to Compare Characteristics Learn to use direct (measured) and indirect (not measured) measures to compare a given characteristic in either metric or customary units. Converting Units of Measurement Learn to solves problems involving units of measure and converts answers to a larger or smaller unit within either the metric or customary system.   ESTIMATING MEASUREMENTS Real-World Estimates of Measurement Learn to solve real-world and mathematical problems involving estimates of measurements including length, time, weight/mass, temperature, money, perimeter, area, and volume, in either customary or metric units.   SELECTING AND USING MEASUREMENT FOR REAL-WORLD Selecting Units of Measurement Learn to select appropriate units of measurement and determine and apply significant digits in a real-world context. (Significant digits should relate to both instrument precision and to the least precise unit of measurement. Instruments, Tools and Techniques of Measurement Learn to select and use appropriate instruments, technology, and techniques to measure quantities in order to achieve specified degrees of accuracy in pa problem situation.
 Sunshine State Standards 6-8 Mathematics/Measurement Standard 1: The student measures quantities in the real world and uses the measures to solve problems (MA.B.1.3). Standard 2: The student compares, contrasts, and converts within systems of measurement (both standard/nonstandard and metric/customary) (MA.B.2.3). Standard 3: The student estimates measurements in real-world problem situations (MA.B.3.3). Standard 4: The student selects and uses appropriate units of measurement to achieve the degree of precision and accuracy required in real-world situations (MA.B.4.3).
