Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement
  • make decisions about units and scales that are appropriate for problem situations involving measurement.

Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements
  • analyze precision, accuracy, and approximate error in measurement situations;
  • understand and use formulas for the area, surface area, and volume of geometric figures, including cones, spheres, and cylinders;
  • apply informal concepts of successive approximation, upper and lower bounds, and limit in measurement situations;
  • use unit analysis to check measurement computations.
