Measurement Math test this Thursday!

We have been practicing our measurement skills since coming back from the Christmas Holidays and now it is time to test our knowledge! On Thursday, we will be having a test that will cover all of the following:

  • metric conversions (including length (M), capacity (L) and mass (G) - many students use the "staircase" method for this. 
  • perimeter of regular and irregular shapes
  • area of rectangles, parallelograms, and triangles (including finding the value of a missing side when given the area - eg. "the area of a triangle is 8cm squared. The base is 4 cm. What is the height?)
  • Surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms (including missing sides)
  • Volume of rectangular and triangular prisms
  • understanding that 1 square meter = 10,000 square cm
  • understanding that 1 cubic meter = 1,000,000 cubic cm
I sent home a measurement review sheet for homework that covers most of these. Also, here are some links to some other websites and units I have put together in the past to help students study:
