Chapter Nine: Measurement and Geometry

Chapter Focus: Use ratios to convert customary and metric units, and solve problems involving measurement and formula

Students will work with both the customary and the metric system of measurements.  They will also measure angles, and find perimeters and circumferences of geometric figures.  New vocabulary will be introduced as well.  Students are allowed to take and use notes for the test.
