In this lesson, we deal with the basics of these measurement units: foot, yard, and mile.
I measure lines using a ruler that measures in feet and inches. Then we calculate the area & perimeter of a square with 4-yard sides. Next, it's time to figure out which measuring unit fits best the given situation (fill in the blanks!).
Next, we do a few easy conversion problems, converting feet into inches, and also feet & inches into inches.
Lastly we solve a word problem concerning two children's heights (given in feet and inches).
This lesson is meant for 3rd grade, and it matches Math Mammoth materials. Check out the complete curriculum at http://www.mathmammoth.com/complete/grade_3.php and the short workbook on measurement units at http://www.mathmammoth.com/measuring_1.php
