Module 10: Measurements & VolumeMath 5B  Course Guide
Module Overview:
In this module, students will learn about converting length, weight, and volume measurements in the customary measurement system. Students will learn about converting measurements in the metric system of measurement. Students will learn about measuring length to oneeighth of an inch. Students will learn about line plots. Students will learn about measuring weight to the nearest oneeighth. Students will learn about the relationship between area and volume.

1  Length Conversions  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: How do you convert measurements of length? What are the basic conversions you need to know? When converting measurements, when do you multiply, when do you divide? 
2  Weight Conversions  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: How are weights converted? What operations are used to convert weights? How do you convert weights that have additional amounts? 
3  Volume Conversions  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What is volume? What are the units used to measure volume? What are the basic volume conversions you should know? 
4  Metric Conversions  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What is the metric system? What is the order of the units in the metric system? How are measurements converted in the metric system? 
5  Measuring Length  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What units measure length? How do you measure with fractions? How do you locate the eighths on a ruler? How do you measure to the nearest eighth of an inch? 
6  Line Plots  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: How is data organized? What is a line plot? What must be included in a line plot? How are line plots evaluated? How do you create a line plot from a set of data? How do you compute the average? 
7  Reading a Scale  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What are scales used for? How do scales compare to rulers? How do you read a scale? What do the lines between the whole numbers mean on a scale? 
8  Line Plot Problems  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What are line plots used for? How is it helpful to organize data with line plots? 
9  Volume  In their math notebook, have your student answer the following questions: What is volume? What kind of objects have volume? How do you use volume?

Module Guiding Questions:
When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.

Module Video Questions:
When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.

Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:
Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:
 What is the main idea?
 What are three things new you learned?
 How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
