# Measurement and data

If you think about it, we measure almost everything: time, distance, size, weight, volume, etc. Every THING can be measured. The question is, what unit of measurement is used and how is that unit constructed, compared, and converted? This last part is what we explore in these tutorials.

This course contains 5 segments:

Volume intro

Welcome to the 3rd dimension! [cue spooky music] This tutorial explains how to find volume.

Finding volume

This tutorial has us calculate the volume of rectangular prisms.

Unit conversion

Wait, I'm in Europe and my car only tells my distance traveled in kilometers! But I'm used to a units of distance devised by the Romans to measure the average length of 1000 paces of a soldier (the "mile")! How do I operate? This tutorial is about the fundamental skill of unit conversion. Sal's cousin Nadia being a bit confused with this was actually the reason why he started tutoring her (which led to the creation of the Khan Academy). Common Core Standard: 5.MD.A.1

Unit measurement word problems

Now that you have some experience converting between units, let's apply that skill in some real-world problems (okay, some of them are a bit concocted, but it's all about the learning)! We'll tackle word problems that deal with distance, weight, volume, time, and more! Common Core Standard: 5.MD.A.1

Data

Unit conversion and data points on a line plot.
