Concepts Covered

Learn relative units within a measurement system. Kilo = 1000 of any unit. 1 hour = 60 min, 1 min = 60 secs. Use benchmarks to reason the relative size of units. Convert among different-sized standard measurement units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec.

When expressing larger measurements in smaller units within the metric system, use place value knowledge of comparing whole numbers, decimal fractions (a denominator of 10 or 100), and decimals. Make tables to show smaller units expressed as larger units. Incorporate fractional units. Convert between units using decimal units.
