Title: Grade 2 Mathematics Module 2, Topic C
Description:

In Topic C, students use different length units to measure and compare lengths. In Lesson 6, they practice applying their knowledge of centimeters and meters to choose an appropriate measurement tool. They discover that there is a relationship between unit size and measurement when they measure one object twice using different length units. They learn that the larger the unit, the fewer units in a given measurement. In Lesson 7, students continue to measure and compare lengths using standard and non-standard length units. At this point, students are prepared to explicitly compare different nonstandard length units and can make inferences about the relative size of objects.
