Measurement Units
B1. Select appropriate units for measuring derived measurements; e.g., miles per hour, revolutions per minute.

B2. Convert units of area and volume within the same measurement system using proportional reasoning and a reference table when appropriate; e.g., square feet to square yards, cubic meters to cubic centimeters.

B3. Estimate a measurement to a greater degree of precision than the
tool provides.

B4. Solve problems involving proportional relationships and scale factors; e.g., scale models that require unit conversions within the same measurement system.

B5. Analyze problem situations involving measurement concepts, select appropriate strategies, and use an organized approach to solve narrative and increasingly complex problems.

B8. Understand the difference between surface area and volume and demonstrate that two objects may have the same surface area, but different volumes or may have the same volume, but different surface areas.

B9. Describe what happens to the surface area and volume of a three-dimensional object when the measurements of the object are changed; e.g., length of sides are doubled.
