How to Measure Volume

A perfect primer to help students grasp the concept of measuring volume, this concise program uses real-life examples— drawn from cooking, pumping gas, organizing, etc.—to illustrate various points. Along the way, terms are defined (volume, solids, liquids, gases), ways to measure solids for cubic results are explained, and viewers learn how to gauge liquids at home (with measuring spoons and cups, for instance) and in science (with beakers and more exact graduated cylinders). Featuring review and “You Decide” segments, DVD extras include labeled slides and a glossary. Also newly available are: Weighing Things and Why Do We Measure? Highly Recommended.
