## Math Mammoth Metric Measuring 1

Math Mammoth Metric Measuring 1 is a worktext that covers measurement-related topics over the span of three grade levels (grades 1-3; ages 6-9 years). Being a worktext, it contains both explanations of the concepts (the “text”) and exercises (the “work”). The lessons in the book come from Math Mammoth Complete Curriculum, grades 1-3, and cover measuring length, weight and volume using the most common metric units, and some easy conversions between the units.

In general, the lessons require very little teacher preparation; however in several you will need to have on hand common measuring tools, such as a ruler, a scale or measuring cups.

This book is not organised by grade levels nor with increasing difficulty. Instead, the lessons are grouped by topic. The first seven lessons deal with measuring length, in increasing difficulty. The very first lessons only deal with centimetres and millimetres and teach students how to measure the length of objects using a ruler and a measuring tape. Then there are lessons that also include metres and kilometres. Lastly, all common metric units for length are dealt with.

Then follow two lessons about weight (mass). In the first one, students use bathroom scales to weigh objects in kilograms. Next they will learn about grams, and use kitchen scales to weigh things in grams.

The book also has one lesson about volume (Millilitres and Litres), which includes many hands-on activities.

When it comes to measuring, experience is the best teacher. We all use various measurement units in our everyday life, and using them is the key to remembering what they are and how to convert between them. The units your student is not using are likely to be forgotten easily. So encourage your student to have free “play time” with measuring devices such as scales, measuring cups, measuring tapes and rulers.

## Math Mammoth Metric Measuring 2

Math Mammoth Metric Measuring 2 covers measurement-related topics for approximately grades 4-5 (ages 9-11).

The lessons cover metric length, weight, and volume, temperature in the Celsius scale, the 24-hour clock, elapsed time, and conversions within the metric system. The book contains both explanations of the concepts and the exercises, and is thus termed a worktext. It requires very little teacher preparation in general; however in several lessons you will need to gather measuring equipment beforehand, such as a ruler, scales or measuring cups.

We start out with 4th grade topics, studying separately the metric units for length, weight and volume in three lessons. These lessons focus on conversions between the units and word problems. If you are looking for lessons that include lots of measuring activities, please check out the book Math Mammoth Metric Measuring 1.

Next, the book contains several lessons aimed for approximately the 5th grade where students learn the basics of the metric system with the prefixes of the various units, and how to convert between the units.

Then it is time to look at temperature. The lessons deal with temperature in Celsius degrees, how to read a thermometer and temperature line graphs.

The lessons on time don’t teach how to tell time or read the clock (for those topics, please check out the book Math Mammoth Clock). Instead, the focus is on conversions between various units of time, the 24-hour clock and calculating elapsed time.
