This resources for teaching about measurement with a real-world twist, this web publication supports standards-based learning in middle school mathematics. The publication highlights interactive resources and online lessons demonstrating how measurement and mathematical problem solving are found in everyday life. The resources, chosen from collections found in the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), can be used to develop students' understanding and skills with measurement, basic geometry, and fraction and decimal arithmetic. The publication is organized into sections offering teacher background information; student activities for measuring, using scale and proportionality, and estimating with benchmarks; and whole class project ideas. Each section opens with a short introduction for the teacher and contains specific information about each featured resource, including links to the catalog record and to the resource's original NSDL collection.
