NM.M. Measurement: Students will understand measurement systems and applications.
K-4.M.1. Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and process of measurement.
3.M.1.1. Demonstrate understanding of the need for measuring with standard units and become familiar with standard units in the U.S. customary system.
3.M.1.2. Choose and use the appropriate units and measurement tools to quantify the properties of objects (e.g., length , width [ruler], or mass [balance scale]).
3.M.1.5. Identify properties (e.g., length, area, weight, volume) and select the appropriate type of unit for measuring each property.
3.M.1.6. Demonstrate understanding that measurements are approximations, investigate differences in units and their effect on precision, and consider the degree of accuracy for different situations.
K-4.M.2. Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.
3.M.2.3. Use appropriate standard units and tools to estimate, measure, and solve problems (e.g., length, area, weight).
