Ratios and Rates/Measurement/Geometry
Ratios and Rates
In the first part we will learn what ratios and rates are and we will look at how to use ratios and rates in real world situations.
In the second part we will learn how to select and use metric units for length, area, volume and capacity, weight, temperature, angle and time. We will find out how to convert between metric units. We will find out how measurements are approximate.
In the third part we will look at how to find perimeters and areas of polygons, circles and other shapes and the volumes of prisms and cylinders. We will look at practical applications of these calculations. When and why would we want to find these out?
