# Lesson 10

Multi-step Measurement Problems

### Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is for students to apply what they learned about metric units of measurement and multiplicative comparison to solve multi-step problems.

### Lesson Narrative

In the preceding lessons, students learned about the relationship between centimeters and meters, grams and kilograms, and liters and milliliters. In this lesson, students integrate what they learned to solve problems that are less straightforward and require them to reason in multiple steps.
