Measurement

LENGTH AND PERIMETER

BIG IDEAS:

(taken from “Big Ideas by Dr. Small”):
  1. There is always value in estimating a measurement.
  2. The length of an object is a one-dimensional attribute. Length can be the measurement of a single measure of an object or a combined linear measure, like perimeter.

STUDENT LEARNING GOALS:

GOAL: I can convert metric units between kilometres, metres, centimetres and millimetres.
GOAL: I can use a ruler to measure to nearest tenth of centimeter (i.e. mm).

CURRICULUM EXPECTATIONS:

  • select and justify the most appropriate metric unit (i.e., millimetre, centimetre, decimetre, metre, decametre, kilometre) to measure length or distance in a given real-life situation.
  • Solve problems requiring conversion from larger to smaller metric units (eg., metres to centimetres, kilograms to grams, litres to millilitres)

AREA, Surface Area, PERIMETER AND VOLUME

UNIT: Area and Volume
BIG IDEAS (taken from “Big Ideas by Dr. Small”):
  • The length of an object is a one-dimensional attribute. Length can be the measurement of a single measure of an object or a combined linear measure, like perimeter.
  • The area of an object is a two-dimensional attribute. Area can be a single measure of a 2-D shape on an object or a combined measure of a 3-D shape, like surface area.
  • The volume of a 3-D object tells how much material it takes to build the object and the capacity of an object tells how much it will hold.
STUDENT LEARNING GOALS:
  • I can determine the area and perimeter of a rectangle
  • I can create a rectangle given the area and/or perimeter
  • I can determine the volume of a rectangular prism.
CURRICULUM EXPECTATIONS:
  • construct a rectangle, a square, a triangle, and a parallelogram using a variety of tools, given the area and/or perimeter.
  • determine, through investigation, the relationship between the area of a rectangle and the areas of parallelograms and triangles, by decomposing and composing 
  • develop the formulas for the area of a parallelogram and the area of a triangle
  • solve problems involving the estimation and calculation of the areas of triangles and the areas of parallelograms
  • determine, using concrete materials, the relationship between units use to measure area and apply the relationship to solve problems that involve conversions from square metres to square centimetres.
  • determine, through investigation using a variety of tools and strategies, the relationship between the height, the area of the base, and the volume of a triangular prism and generalize to develop the formula.
  • determine through investigation using a variety of tools and strategies, the surface area of a rectangular and triangular prisms.
  • Solve problems involving the estimation and calculation of the surface area and volume of triangular and rectangular prisms.
