### OAE Middle Grades Math: Measurement Chapter Objectives

The purpose of the OAE Middle Grades Mathematics assessment is to test your knowledge of the subject area to ensure you're prepared to teach students in the classroom and secure teacher licensing in the state of Ohio. The topics in this OAE Middle Grades Math: Measurement chapter are a part of measurement and geometry portion of your test, which constitutes about 25% of the assessment. The self-assessment quizzes available with each lesson can be used to test your knowledge of the materials while preparing you to answer a variety of questions you will encounter on the exam.

All questions on the exam are multiple-choice and require you to read a passage based on specific competencies. You are most likely to encounter short questions, statements or paragraphs that are followed by four answers. You will be required to choose one you believe represents the best answer.

### 1. Standard Units of Measurement for Length, Weight, Time & Capacity

Watch this video lesson to learn how to recognize the various units of measurement for length, weight, time and volume. Learn to recognize both U.S. units and metric units.

### 2. How to Convert Standard Units of Measure

The United States uses pounds, miles and Fahrenheit for measurements, but the rest of the world uses the metric system. This video lesson will help you to convert from one to the other easily, so you can understand kilometers and kilograms, too.

### 3. How to Perform Basic Operations with Measurements

In this video lesson, you will learn how measurements are very much like variables when it comes to adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing them. You will also see examples of how they are done.

### 4. The Metric System: Units and Conversion

Just like you and your friend communicate using the same language, scientists all over the world need to use the same language when reporting the measurements they make. This language is called the metric system. In this lesson we will cover the metric units for length, mass, volume, density and temperature, and also discuss how to convert among them.

### 5. How to Convert Units in the Metric System

If you can make dinner, you can convert units in the metric system. It's that easy! In this lesson, you'll learn about the three key things you'll need to perform conversions.

### 6. How to Read and Interpret Scale Drawings

Watch this video lesson to learn how scale drawings and legends are used on maps and blueprints. Learn skills that will serve you well when traveling and when looking at the blueprints of a car.

### 7. Converting Units of Time

After watching this video lesson, you will understand the units of time that we use to count time and know how to convert between these units. Learn the one number that you have to multiply and divide by to make your conversions.

### 8. Distance in the Metric System

Watch this video lesson to learn what units are used in the metric system for measuring. Also, learn how easy it is to convert from one unit to another.

### 9. U.S. Customary Units to Measure Distance

After watching this video lesson, you will know what the units for measuring distance are in the United States and how to convert between the units. You will see that there is a special number for each conversion.

### 10. Measuring Capacity Using the Metric System

In this video lesson, you will learn what units are used to measure capacity or volume in the metric system. You will also learn how to convert between these units and what special numbers are required to do so.

### 11. U.S. Customary Units to Measure Capacity

After watching this video lesson, you will know how capacity or volume is measured in the U.S. You will know the units that are used as well as how to convert between the units.

### 12. Measuring Mass Using the Metric System

After watching this video lesson, you will know which units for mass are used in the metric system along with how to convert between the units. You will find out which special numbers are used for the conversions.

### 13. U.S. Customary Units to Measure Weight

Watch this video lesson to learn how the U.S. measures weight and how you can convert between them. Learn the conversion numbers that you need for each conversion along with the proper operation.

### 14. Converting Weight in Metric & U.S. Customary Systems

You may think that converting weight measurements from one system to another is tricky, but after watching this video lesson, you will be ready to convert any kind of weight measurement you encounter.

### 15. Converting Celsius to Fahrenheit and Back

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius measurements of temperature. This will help when you visit the doctor and when you travel to different countries.
