Learning Math: Measurement

Learning Math: Measurement, a video- and Web-based course for elementary and middle school teachers, examines some of the major ideas in measurement. You will explore procedures for measuring and learn about standard units in the metric and customary systems, the relationships among units, and the approximate nature of measurement. You will also examine how measurement can illuminate mathematical concepts such as irrational numbers, properties of circles, and area and volume formulas, and discover how other mathematical concepts can inform measurement tasks such as indirect measurement.nnThe course consists of 10 approximately two-and-a-half-hour sessions, each with a half hour of video programming, . . .
