Who is the tallest?

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This task provides a context for translating between different units. While there are in principle multiple approaches (using each of the different units for measurement), the 4.MD.1 standard calls for converting a larger unit to a smaller unit. Students who convert all of the heights to inches are meeting the expectations of the standard, and students solving it in other ways are exceeding the expectations of the standard. The heights for Sarah and Emily are presented in the most familiar way.
