Measurement and data

If you think about it, we measure almost everything: time, distance, size, weight, volume, etc. Every THING can be measured. The question is, what unit of measurement is used and how is that unit constructed, compared, and converted? This last part is what we explore in these tutorials.

Now that you have some experience converting between units, let's apply that skill in some real-world problems (okay, some of them are a bit concocted, but it's all about the learning)! We'll tackle word problems that deal with distance, weight, volume, time, and more! Common Core Standard: 5.MD.A.1
