Abstract:

"The lessons in Sizing Up Measurement: Activities for Grades 6-8 Classrooms focus on concepts important to the middle school math curriculum, including length, area, volume, ratios and rates, similarity, and angles, and often make connections among various measurement topics. Each lesson is organized in an accessible, easy-to-use format that includes an overview, a list of materials, a vocabulary list, and step-by-step teaching directions. Students come away from these lessons with a deeper understanding of why and how to measure, and they develop the confidence required to make sense of any situation and the measurement tools involved."--pub. desc.
