# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Introduction to Technology Task 522313549

# Demonstrate various types of measuring.

## Definition

Demonstration may include using ruler, thermometer, micrometer, and Volt-Ohm-Milliammeter (VOM). Measuring may include U.S. customary, metric, and other ways of measuring distance, volume, area, and weight.

## Process/Skill Questions

• What is measurement?
• What are the basic units of measurement?
• What is a fraction?
• What does the denominator of a fraction represent?
• What does the numerator of a fraction represent?
• What types of tools and units would be used to measure distance? Thickness? Voltage? Temperature? Altitude?
• What led to the development of measurement systems?
