Module 3: Ordering and Comparing Length Measurements as Numbers

Students explore the usefulness of measuring with similar units.

13 Instructional Days (31 Hours)

Description

Module 3 begins by extending students’ kindergarten experiences with direct length comparison to indirect comparison whereby the length of one object is used to compare the lengths of two other objects. Longer than and shorter than are taken to a new level of precision by introducing the idea of a length unit. Students then explore the usefulness of measuring with similar units. The module closes with students representing and interpreting data.

The Following Topics Are Included within this Module:

  • Topic A:   Indirect Comparison of Length Measurement
  • Topic B:  Standard Length Units
  • Topic C:  Non-Standard and Standard Length Units
