As we begin a study of metric and customary systems, how their units can be converted back and forth, and how to use benchmarks to make estimated measures, we are reminded of what we've learned in 5th grade. This makes this standard a lot easier! We won't focus so much on measurement; we will look closely at how we can move between measurement systems, and to bring it to our everyday lives, we'll do a bit of measuring.
Soon after, we'll be in review mode as we ready ourselves for the midpoint test (May 8th), and then we'll be in full SOL mode...and I can't wait! I'll give you a few hints as to what we'll be doing...
