Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.2

Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.

Description

Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving 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.

This unit is basically chapter 5 in our Math Expressions curriculum.  If your district uses Math Expressions, then this unit will make a lot of sense to you.  If you don't have Math Expressions, this unit can still help guide you through teaching your kids meausurement using customary and metric systems.
