This set of printable measurement worksheets covers just about every topic you can measure.

Many times we forget the importance of measurement in our everyday lives. When the doctor prescribes you medicine to get you better measurement is at the fore front of their mind as well as the pharmacist that fills the prescription for you. Too much will most definitely hurt you. Too little and you will not see the health benefit. When we cook things which measurement system are we using cooking a roast at 400 degrees is great when using U.S. measurement standards, but in the Metric system you might vaporize it, if you could find an oven that even reaches those temperatures. Standard units of measurement differ between the United States and all other countries. In the United States the unit of measure are called US Customary Units. Most of the rest of the world follows the metric system. Throughout history the United States government has reviewed the use of this standard of measurement and has time and time again stuck with their system. At this point U.S. industry and business are so invested in the system that would create a financial hardship, if it were to be changed.

As you scroll through the worksheets, lessons, and quizzes below you will notice that they are arranged alphabetically due to the sheer volume of topics that we have available. You will learn how to perform operations with units of measure. You will learn how to convert between various units. Students will learn how to draw things to scale and use various forms of scientific forms of notation. You will also learn how to take readings and interpret commonly used laboratory equipment. Most importantly you will learn how to calculate how precise your readings are and can be. Units of measurement basically make the world go round. When we neglect to understand these units, we basically neglect to know the world around us.

Add and Subtract Measurement (Fractions)

Adding or subtracting measurements is like common operations. The difference is that you need to note the units of measure that are used. This section highlights fractional values.

Add and Subtract Mixed Measures

These worksheets will require you to convert units often.

Approximation

We first determine how close to actual we need to be and then we learn how to calculate it.

Capacity

How much can something hold? Depending on the phase the matter is in also effects this measure.

Converting Mixed Units of Measurement

This is a nice review for students that are studying physical science.

Converting Units of Length

We skip between different forms of notation to determine the outcome.

Counting Units of Measure

We work on improving our observation skills.

Decimals in Measurement Units

The French were the first to introduce and push for the use of decimals in measures.

Error in Measurement

The tools that we use to measure anything have some level of inaccuracy. How far you are of can determine the significance of your results.

Estimate Length

Being able to forecast a presentable outcome before taken a measure can increase our accuracy.

Fractions and Decimals in Measurements

This topic will explore how we move between both of these forms of notation.

Gallon Man

A fun and creative way to help students learn how to convert liquid units of capacity.

Liquid Measurement

Learn how to take acceptable measures of liquids and become familiar with the unit of these measures.

Measures of Weight

This will help you find acceptable units and ballpark an answer for you.

Measurement Multiplication

We learn how to find the products of two measures, and we learn to compound the units as well.

Metric Units of Measurement

We learn the units that are common to the metric system.

Reading Barometers

Learn how to read these tools that measure atmospheric pressure. They can be helpful when predicting future weather patterns.

Reading Dial Gauges

These tools are found everywhere. If you have an analog dashboard in your car, you are pretty familiar with gauges.

Reading Graduated Cylinders

One of the most commonly used tools to measure liquid volume.

Reading Rain Gauges

Learn how to read how much rain has fallen in your area.

Rulers

Learn how to measure length with these tools.

Scale Factors

This will help you develop much more accurate models for just about anything.

Scientific Notation

This is commonly used to not very small and very large values. If you are studying space you would be working with big numbers, this makes it easier.

Surface Area

The total area of the outside surface of a solid object.

Surface Area and Volume of a Cube

We focus on using and understanding measures of a cube.

Tall and Short

This starts students on comparing a relative length between two objects.

Thermometers

We learn how to read these tools and make decisions based on it.

Time Conversion

We look at elapsed time and how to calculate it.

Unit Conversions

A nice way to review and evaluate your success with converting between a series of unit measures.

Units of Area

How much space does something take up?

Unit Rates

These are ratios that help us compare two quantities and help us gauge the status of something.

Measures of Length

We get comfortable with a number of different methods of taking these readings.

Volume

We look at the measure, the units that are involved and what it means.

Weighted Balance and Scale

Students learn how to make measures on commonly used balances.
