STATE GOAL 7: Estimate, make and use measure-ments of objects, quantities and relationships and

determine acceptable levels of accuracy.

As a result of their schooling, students will be able to:



A. Measure and compare quantities using appropriate units, instruments and methods.

7.A.4a Apply units and scales to describe and compare numerical data and physical objects.

7.A.4b Apply formulas in a wide variety of theoretical and practical real-world measurement applications involving perimeter, area, volume, angle, time, temperature, mass, speed, distance, density and monetary values.


B. Estimate measurements and determine acceptable levels of accuracy.

7.B.5 Estimate perimeter, area, volume, and capacity of irregular shapes, regions and solids and explain the reasoning supporting the estimate.







C. Select and use appropriate technology, instruments and formulas to solve problems, interpret results and communicate findings.

7.C.5a Use dimensional analysis to determine units and check answers in applied measurement problems.

7.C.5b Determine how changes in one measure may affect other measures (e.g., what happens to the volume and surface area of a cube when the side of the cube is halved).
