(9) Measurement. The student directly compares the attributes of length, area, weight/mass, and capacity, and uses comparative language to solve problems and answer questions. The student selects and uses nonstandard units to describe length, area, capacity, and weight/mass. The student recognizes and uses models that approximate standard units ( from both SI, also known as metric, and customary systems) of length, weight/mass, capacity, and time. The student is expected to:

(A) identify concrete models that approximate standard units of length and use them to measure length;

(B) select a non-standard unit of measure such as square tiles to determine the area of a two-dimensional surface;

(C) select a non-standard unit of measure such as a bathroom cup or a jar to determine the capacity of a given container; and

(D) select a non-standard unit of measure such as beans or marbles to determine the weight/mass of a given object.
