# Ch 36: ORELA Middle Grades Math: Measurements

The state of Oregon has replaced the ORELA Middle Grades Math exam with the National Evaluation Series (NES) Middle Grades Mathematics test. This chapter offers engaging video lessons and lesson quizzes to help you prepare for the measurements questions on the NES Mathematics test.

## NES Middle Grades Mathematics: Measurements - Chapter Summary

The lesson videos in this chapter will help prepare you for the measurements portion of the NES Middle Grades Mathematics test by explaining the various units of measurement for distance, weight, volume, time, and temperature, including those of the U.S. customary and metric system.

Our instructors will also demonstrate how to convert one unit of measurement to another, and what units are appropriate for communications in certain situations (e.g. when you should use miles instead of feet). In addition to learning about the various units of measurement, this chapter also includes an overview on how to work with scale representations. Once you have watched the video lessons in this chapter you should have a firm understanding about:

• What the standard units of measurement are for length, weight, volume, time and temperature
• How to convert between standard units of measurement
• Methods for performing basic measurements
• How units in the metric system are converted from units of one magnitude to units of another
• Reading scaled drawings
• Converting units of time between differing magnitudes
• The correct metric or U.S. customary units of measurement to use in certain situations
• How to convert units of the U.S. customary system to metric units

Once you've finished the video lessons you can take the quizzes to see if additional study is needed. Video tags come in handy to jump to any main point in the videos and review those topics before deciding if you're ready for the NES Middle Grades Mathematics test. All the videos lessons in this chapter are taught by professionals in the field, so assistance is there if you need it.

### NES Middle Grades Mathematics: Measurements Objectives

The NES Middle Grades Mathematics test is used to assess how well future educators have mastered the material they will be tasked with teaching. It's a four hour and 15-minute computer based test that consists of approximately 150 multiple-choice questions. Roughly 25% of those questions will be on measurement and geometry. The video lessons in this chapter will help you master the materials on both the metric and U.S. customary systems to help prepare you for the measurements questions.
