Measuring in Science

From the: Scientific Processes Series

Measuring is a vital process in science, and it is a process all students can carry out. This program demonstrates many of the different ways measurement occurs in science including measuring length, mass, volume, and temperature. Special emphasis is placed on using the metric system. Other terminology includes: balance, meter stick, graduated cylinder, beaker, water displacement, density, and Celsius.

"...Footage of male and female scientists on the job demonstrating measurement and data collecting practices reflect a balanced gender and ethnic perspective...pace of the narration gives the target audience time to absorb the principles being taught..." -- School Library Journal February 2006
