Mathematics 10 Measurement
Specific Curriculum Outcomes
M01 Students will be expected to solve problems that involve linear measurement, using SI and imperial units of measure, estimation strategies, and measurement strategies.
M02 Students will be expected to apply proportional reasoning to problems that involve conversions between SI and imperial units of measure. (Note: conversions between SI and imperial units should be limited to commonly used linear units of measure)
M03 Students will be expected to solve problems, using SI and imperial units, that involve the surface area and volume of 3D objects, including right cones, right cylinders, right prisms, right pyramids, and spheres. (Note: these outcomes follow from Math 8 M03/M04 and Math 9 G01)

M01 Activities
 What is the Height of the Lamp post? from Estimation180  Use a photo of a man standing next to a lamp post to try to estimate the lamp posts height? Estimation180 has a picture for each day of the school year that can be used to develop estimation strategies and benchmarks for both SI and imperial units of measurement.
M02 Activities
 Would You Rather Have a Pound of Quarters or a Pound of Dimes? from Would You Rather  You could change this up to be a pound of quarters or a kilogram of dimes (or nickels) in order to add in the conversion between SI and metric units. You could also change this to linear measurement.
 Would You Rather Have a Stack of Quarters from the floor to the top of your Head OR $225? from Would You Rather  Whichever answer you choose, justify your reasoning with mathematics.
M03 Activities
 Which One Doesn't Belong? from wodb.ca and Illustrative Math  Find a reason why each shape does not belong with the rest of the group. A great strategy for promoting classroom discussion.



 Liu Hui Trisection of a Cube from Jen Silver  While working on the trisection of a cube in order to investigate the volume of a pyramid, Jen ran across an interesting alternate dissection of a cube from Liu Hui, was a 3rd century Chinese mathematician.

 Prisms and Pyramids from Tap Into Teen Minds  A 3Act math task to find out how many pyramids it takes to fill a prism with the same height. Great videos and questions. This activity is closely related to the exporation from Unit 3.3 on p128 of the Math at Work 11 Textbook.
