This week in Math 10…
This week in Math 10 we started our Measurement Unit. I learned that estimating can now become a bit more accurate just by using our body to measure things. It also helps if you know the measurements of the body parts you are using to estimate the real size.
Large Objects – Face of your Fridge:
You could use the width of your body (shoulder to shoulder) and measure the face that way.
Medium/ Regular Objects – Computer Face:
You could use the width of your hand (edge of pinkie to edge of thumb) and measure the face that way.
Small/ Tiny Objects – Plastic Water Bottle Cap:
You could use the height of coins stacked (dimes are good) and measure the height that way.
