EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students understand how choice of unit determines how easy or difficult it is to understand an expression of measurement. Students determine appropriate units for various measurements and rewrite measurements based on new units. This lesson focuses on choosing appropriate units. It is important for students to see the simple example (i.e., dining table measurements), as well as more sophisticated examples from physics and astronomy.
