### TABE Math - Grade 3: Measurement & Data Chapter Objectives

The Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE) is designed to gauge the knowledge and skills of adult learners. There are a number of TABE tests available, but the premier option is TABE 9&10, which explores test takers' comprehension of reading, language, language mechanics, vocabulary, spelling and math. Topics in this chapter prepare you for measurement and data questions in the applied mathematics portion of this test. The applied mathematics portion has a complete battery number of items listed at 50, while the survey number of items is listed at 25.

You can prepare for questions on the exam by refreshing your knowledge of measurement and data with the lessons in this chapter. Self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam are available to gauge your comprehension of the materials. If you have any questions about lesson topics, feel free to submit them to our experts.

### 1. What Are Odd & Even Numbers? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you'll learn what odd and even numbers are with the help of some visual aids. You'll also learn some interesting properties of odd and even numbers. Then, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.

### 2. How to Identify Even & Odd Numbers

In this short lesson, you will learn a bit more about numbers. You will learn what makes a number even, what makes a number odd, and how to identify each.

### 3. Even Number Pairing & Equations

Integers can be even or odd. This lesson will discuss the concepts of even pairings and even number equations, which will lead to the technical definition of even numbers and allow us to determine if a given number is even or odd.

### 4. How to Tell Time on an Analog Clock

Watch this video lesson and you will learn how to read the big clock with moving hands that is on the wall of most classrooms. You will see how the clock is divided into hours, minutes, and seconds.

### 5. How to Measure & Calculate Elapsed Time

Time is constantly passing, but how can we calculate how much time is passing? In this lesson, we'll learn what elapsed time is and explore two ways to measure and calculate it.

### 6. How to Read Timelines

Timelines can teach you a lot about both historical and personal events if you know how to read them. In this lesson, you will learn how to read the title, time periods, and events on a timeline.

### 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. What is the Metric System?

Most of the world relies on the metric system for measuring distance, weight, volume, and time. Watch this video lesson to learn what kinds of measurements are used in the metric system.

### 9. Understanding Laboratory Measurements: Units & Types

There are many different units that can be used for measurements. This may not only lead to incorrect data measurements, but also to confusion about which units are most appropriate. Therefore, a standard set of units is used for each type of measurement in the biology lab.

### 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. 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.

### 12. How to Use a Ruler in Inches

What do all of the little lines on ruler represent? How do you measure using inches? Don't worry, this lesson will answer all of your inch-measuring questions.

### 13. Reading and Interpreting Line Graphs

Watch this video lesson to find out how useful line graphs can be and how much information you can gain just from looking at one. Learn how you can apply that information in your own life to help you make better decisions.

### 14. What is Perimeter? - Definition & Formula

In mathematics, the perimeter is the distance around a two-dimensional shape. The formula for finding the perimeter of certain shapes will be discussed in this lesson, and there will be some examples to help you understand how to calculate the perimeter.

### 15. Perimeter of Triangles and Rectangles

Without realizing it, we calculate and use the perimeter of triangles and rectangles in regular everyday situations. Learn more about the perimeter of triangles and rectangles in this lesson, and test your knowledge with a quiz.
