Measurement Benchmarks and Conversions

MAFS.4.MD.1.1 – Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), …

 

MAFS.4.MD.1.2 – Use the four operations to solve word problems1 involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals2. Represent fractional quantities of distance and intervals of time using linear models. (2Computational fluency with fractions and decimals is not the goal for students at this grade level.)
