Contributed By


This lesson is designed to teach students practical reasons for measurement, the use of various tools for measurement, how and why those tools might be chosen and/or designed, and the need for uniformity and agreement on definitions of measurement. In this group activity, students select a student to measure, which tools are most appropriate, which aspects can or should be measured, and processes for measuring those aspects. There are also performance assessment guidelines to evaluate student understanding and participation. Less
