What are the 3 steps for using a formula? | Write the formula.Substitute the measurements with labelsAnswer with labels |

Definition of perimeter | Distance around an object |

Formula for perimeter | P= S + S+ S+ ... (s=sides) |

Possible labels for perimeter | cm, m, mm, ... |

A rectangle has one side that measures 4 cm and another side that measures 2 cm. Figure out the perimeter. | 4 + 4 + 2 + 2= 12 cm |

Define area | measure of flat surface 2 dimensions |

How do you calculate the area of a regular quadrilateral? | l x w or b x h |

What is the label for area? | cm2 or mm2 or m2.. |

Find the area for a rectangle that measures 4 cm by 2 cm. | 4 x 2 = 8 cm2 |

Define volume of a solid object. | amount of space inside an object |

Formula for volume of a solid object. | l x w x h |

Label for the volume of a solid object. | cm3 |

How is liquid volume measured? | with a graduated cylinder |

What label do you use for liquid volume? | ml or cc |

What are the rules for measuring with a graduated cylinder? | Measure on a flat surface. Measure at eye level. Read the bottom of the meniscus |

What is the meniscus? | curve formed by the water adhering to the sides of the graduated cylinder |

What is the graduation on a cylinder? | the little lines |

Graduated cylinders are named by | how much it can measure- 10 ml, 100 ml, 250 ml |

What is the method used to find the volume of an irregular object? | liquid/fluid displacement |

List the five steps of fluid displacement | 1. Fill the graduated cylinder with water to cover the object2. Record the starting volume3. Gently insert object4. Record ending volume5. Subtract ending volume minus starting volume |

What is mass? | the amount of matter in an object |

How is mass measured? | with a triple beam balance |

What are the four rules for using a triple beam balance? | 1. Carry with both hands2. Return all riders to zero before removing object3. Do not put chemicals or liquids directly on the pan.4. Calibrate |

What does it mean when the triple beam balance is calibrated? | all of the riders are at zero and the pointer points to zero |

What do you do if the triple beam balance is not calibrated? | turn the zero knob |

To find the mass of a liquid, subtract _____ from _____ | mass of the container with liquid from the mass of the container= mass of the liquid |

The mass of the container is the ____ | tare |

Define weight | the pull of gravity on mass |
