Product Description
Measurement tools and skills have a variety of uses in everyday life. The ability to use measuring tools, rulers, thermometers, scales, and to estimate with these tools are necessary skills that enable us to quantify the world around us. They can tell us how tall we are, how hot we are, how much we drink, how heavy we are and how far it is from here to there. Basic measures of distance and time allow us to calculate speed and acceleration and ultimately tell us how fast we need to project a rocket to allow it reach the Moon, and how populations change and grow.
Measurement is important in providing links between strands of mathematics. For example, it provides a rich and meaningful context for the use of number skills and of spatial concepts.
Measurement also provides links between mathematics and other school subjects. Measuring skills, especially estimating, have an important place in many games and sports. In addition to being required in many science investigations they also play a part in some artistic and musical experiences. On the other hand we have the Non-standard units: Some form of unit needs to be used if a question such as "How much longer is your pencil than mine?" is asked. Non-standard units are ordinary objects which are used because they are known to students and are readily available, for example, paces for length, books for area and cups for volume. Students should be provided with many opportunities to measure using these kinds of non-standard units. Non-standard units introduce the students to the use of units to provide numbers that describe a measure outcome, for example, the desk is 4 handspans across. Non-standard units introduce most of the principles associated with measurement: Measures are expressed by counting the total number of units used. Units of measure are not absolute but are chosen for appropriateness. For example, the length of the room could be measured by handspans but a pace is more appropriate.
Prior to introducing standard units, students need to realise that non-standard units tend to be personal and are not the most suitable for communication. For example, my hands are smaller than yours, so telling me to measure a piece of cloth three hands wide may not be useful.
