NY-2.MD. Measurement & Data
Measure and estimate lengths in standard units.
NY-2.MD.1. Measure the length of an object to the nearest whole by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
NY-2.MD.4. Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard “length unit.”
Represent and interpret data.
NY-2.MD.9. Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Present the measurement data in a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
