Measurements of Time Millisecond, minutes, hours, seconds
Tools to measure time stop watch, clock
Definition of temperature Amount of heat in an object
Tool to measure temperature Thermometer
Define Length Distance between two points
Tools to measure length meter stick, metric ruler
Measured in: Kilometer (km), meters (m), centimeters (cm), millimeters (mm)
Rulers are numbered in centimeters
What are the small lines in between the centimeters millimeters
When moving from larger to smaller units move the decimal point to the right
When moving from smaller to larger units move the decimal point to the left
The larger units of measure are kilo – hecto – and deka –
Smaller units of measure are deci- milli – and centi –
Standard units of measure are meter, liter, and grams
The metric system is known as International system or SI
