Strand: MEASUREMENT AND DATA (4.MD)

Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit (Standards 4.MD.12). Apply knowledge of area and perimeter to solve realworld and mathematical problems (Standard 4.MD.3). Represent and interpret data through the use of a line plot (Standard 4.MD.4). Understand various concepts of angles and angle measurement (Standard 4.MD.57).

Standard 4.MD.4

Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (halves, quarters, and eighths). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction with like denominators of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, use a line plot to find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest pencils in a classroom.

  • Button Diameters
    The purpose of this task is for students to measure lengths to the nearest eighth and quarter-inch and to record that information in a line plot.
  • Grade 4 Unit 7: Measurement (Georgia Standards)
    In this unit students will investigate what it means to measure length, weight, liquid volume, time, and angles, understand how to use standardized tools to measure length, weight, liquid volume, time, and angles, understand how different units within a system (customary and metric) are related to each other, know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz; L, ml; hr, min, sec. and solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals.
  • Measurement and Data (4.MD) - Fourth Grade Core Guide
    The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for Fourth Grade Mathematics - Measurement and Data (4.MD)
