# Grade 4: Chapter 12 Relative Sizes of Measurement Units Grade 4: Chapter 12 – Relative Sizes of Measurement Units

Chapter Essential Question: How can you use relative sizes of measurements to solve problems and to generate measurement tables that show a relationship?

Before
(Grade 3) / Chapter Twelve Standards
Solve problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of object. (3.MD.1, 3.MD.2)
Represent and interpret data. (3.MD.4) / Measurement and Data 1: Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table.
• I can use benchmarks to understand the relative sizes of measurement units.
• I can use models to compare customary units of length.
• I can use models to compare customary units of weight.
• I can use models to compare customary units of liquid volume.
• I can use models to compare metric units of length.
• I can use models to compare metric units of mass and liquid volume. (Also 4.MD.2)
• I can use models to compare units of time.
• I can use patterns to write number pairs for measurement units.
/ Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system. (5.MD.1)
Represent and interpret data. (5.MD.2)
Measurement and Data 2: Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems having simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
• I can use the strategy draw a diagram to solve elapsed time problems.
• I can solve problems involving mixed measures.

Measurement and Data 4: Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots.
• I can make and interpret line plots with fractional data.

Each day the math block will begin with 15 minutes of Daily Math Review and Mental Math. The focus of DMR should be either prerequisite standard skills or previous chapter concepts that were not mastered. The focus of mental math should be based on the current Chapter’s skills and concepts. Adjust the amount of questions in DMR and MM to fit into the 15 minute time block.

Suggested Chapter Pacing

All lessons are paced for one day, unless otherwise indicated. Teachers may adjust to meet students’ needs.
