This is a 24-page ebook from the Australian Curriculum Mathematics – Measurement and Geometry series that covers:
Using units of measurement:
Choose appropriate units of length, area, volume, capacity and mass (ACMMG108)
recognising that some units of measurement are better suited for some tasks than others, for example kilometres rather than metres to measure the distance between two towns
investigating alternative measures of scales to demonstrate that these vary between countries and change over time, for example temperature measurement in Australian, Indonesia, Japan and USA
