Learn to use measurements in everyday life by converting and calculating area, perimeter and surface area. Our resource introduces the mathematical concepts taken from real-life experiences, and provides warm-up and timed practice questions to strengthen procedural proficiency skills. Convert heights of famous buildings from feet to meters. Scale objects using 1 inch = 1 foot, or 1 cm = 10 cm. Learn how to read and understand a weather chart. Convert standard and metric measurements. Calculate the area and perimeter of shapes. Determine the surface area of cubes. Convert lengths into two new measurements. The task and drill sheets provide a leveled approach to learning, starting with grade 6 and increasing in difficulty to grade 8. Aligned to your State Standards and meeting the concepts addressed by the NCTM standards, reproducible task sheets, drill sheets, review and answer key are included.
