Measurement Experiences

• Children’s measurement experiences should include
the comparison of objects based on a common
attribute.
• They should order objects from largest to smallest or
smallest to largest based on the basis of the
comparison activity
• They should experience a unit of measure as an object
having the common attribute is being measured
• They should be involved in activities in which they
make repeated application of the unit in order to arrive
at the measure of that unit.
Which Angle is Largest?

Angle 1
Angle 2
Non- Standard Units

• A unit is an object having a particular attribute in
which we are interested

• Paper clips for lengths

• What can be used for angle measurement?
Activity

• How would you measure an angle if you did not
have a protractor?
• Use your compass to draw a circle on the waxed
paper
• Discuss in your circle how you might be able to
use the circle to measure the angles on your
paper.
• Measure your angles using the method your
group’s method
Discussion of Groups’
Methods
Other Non-Standard Units

• Pattern blocks
• Twangles
• Twangles can be combine to form a sort of
protractor called Fan-Twangles
• Trace around the pattern blocks and
measure the angles in “twangles”
Twangle Time

• Building a Protractor with non-standard units
Build a Protractor

• Non-Standard Units

• Measure the angles of the shapes using the non-
standard unit protractor

• What do you notice about the measure of the
angles in the triangles?

• What do you notice about the measure of the
Geometry 4.G
Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify
shapes by properties of their lines and angles.

1. Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles
(right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel
lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
Measurement and Data
4.MD
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of
angle and measure angles.
5. Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever
two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of
angle measurement:
a. An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the
common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the
circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle.
An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “one-degree
angle,” and can be used to measure angles.
b. An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an
angle measure of n degrees.

4.MD
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle
and measure angles.
6. Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a
protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.

7. Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle
is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle
measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures
of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to
find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and
mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with
a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
