Previously, students reasoned multiplicatively about measurements and performed unit conversions to solve problems in the context of mass and capacity. In this lesson, they do the same in the context of length measurements, using familiar customary units from earlier grades (yards, feet, and inches).
- Action and Expression
Activity 2: Stone Towers
- Use multiplicative comparison and unit conversion to solve multi-step problems about length (in yards, feet, inches).
- Let’s solve problems about distances and lengths.
