Use nonstandard units to show the length of an object as the number of same size units of length with no gaps or overlaps.

Measurement and Data

Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units.

Finer grained standards that are part of this one

Have students use connecting blocks or some other nonstandard unit to measure three pencils and then put them in order from shortest to longest. For example, students may use buttons to measure the pencils and determine that a pencil is 6 buttons long. [Image cannot be reproduced.]

Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades

Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Use the data to create a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.

Standards derived from the same national standard

Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.
