textbook
Capacity
the maximum(or most)
amount that can be
contained by an object
(usally liquid)
Area

standard
1 cup(c)=8 fluid ounces (fl oz)
1 pint (pt)=2 cups (c)

gallon=
metric
standard
1 Liter(L)=1,000
millimeter(ml)
nonstanderd
1 millimeter(ml)=10 drops
1 liter(L)=half of a 2 liter bottle
measures the space(square units) inside
a 2-D shape or object.Usally rectangles or squares
how to get area of rectangles and squares
length x width = area
examples
4 x 4 =
3 x 3 =
2 x 2 =
3
3
2
2
4
4
Perimiter
measures the distance (or length) around the outside of an object
differint ways to solve perimiter poblems
12+12+9+9=42
12 x 2=24 9 x 2=18
24+18=42
12+9=21 21 x 2=42
what to do when all sides are equal
Volume
example:
given length or width of side x # of sides= perimiter of object
measures the number of cubic units inside a 3-D shape; how much space an object takes up
how to get volume of retangular prism and cube
length x width x hight=volume
example:
3
3
4
3 x 4 x 3 = 36
customary-used in US
metric-used in other contries
