EM Units

Next test: TBA

Current Unit: 

In this unit, children review and extend their previous work with measures of length, weight and capacity. Measurements will be displayed in graphs and frequency tables. The emphasis on hands-on activities in this unit reflects the fact that anything that involves measures begins with the use of measuring tools.


Children will also extend previous informal work with the median and mode of a set data and introduce the standard method of calculating the mean. These statistical measures are used to analyze and compare measurement data. Unit 10 has three main areas of focus:

*To review units, tools and measures of weight, length and capacity

*To introduce the mean of a set of data

*To gain experience with plotting points on a coordinate grid
