Name a time that you have used measurement in your life: Common system of measurement: SI UNITS!!! Sect. 1 – A - Measurement is a description with numbers! Section 2 – B. - the SI unit for length is: The The amount of matter in an object: mass Meter A method of making a rough measurement: Estimation A graph that shows parts of a whole (percent): Circle graph How carefully you measure is: precision Measure the length from wall to wall in my room. (Need volunteers) What are we measuring in?????? First: Figure the Perimeter Second: Figure the Area SI unit for length – METER!!!
