e) We are going to learn about measurement.  But first we need to understand the language that we use to express measurements.  I am 23.  What does this mean?  I am 23 turkeys? I am 23 fortnites?  I am 23 on the basketball court?   (shout out to Michael Jordan)

When we express a measurement of time, distance, volume, mass or temperature we need a common currency.  In Canada I can buy a litre of gas for $0.75.  In the United States I can buy a gallon of gas for $1.70.  Who is cheaper, Canada or the US?  Two things are giving us a headache right now with this question.  First, a dollar in Canada and a dollar in the US are not the same.  Second, a gallon is a lot larger than a litre.  We need a common currency or common units to compare.

Would you rather have edible spaghetti hair that grows back every night or sweat maple syrup?  Maybe units don’t help with that comparison but what about this one:  Would you rather do 1200 seconds of math homework or 30 minutes of math homework every night?  Would it help to know how many minutes 1200 seconds is?  Hmmmm.  See where we are going with this?  Lets start gently.  Complete the task below and use the following form to share your findings with me:

  1. Find 2 things that are measured in millilitres in your home.
  2. Find 2 things that are measured in grams in your home.
  3. Find a measuring cup in your kitchen and use it to compare 1 cup, 8oz and 250mL
  4. Would you rather the spaghetti hair or the maple syrup?  Why?
