What is Measurement?

Measurement means determining the quantity of something such as weight or length using counting or tools of measurement. It involves counting the amount of an appropriate unit that matches the item to be measured.

Measurement can be informal or formal. Informal measurement includes a measurement activity like pacing down the side of your pool to see how long it is or using a piece of string to see if a new couch will fit through a doorway. Formal measurement involves using a standard, agreed on Unit Of Measurement to accurately measure something. An example would be using a ruler to measure the length of something in centimetres or using a set of scales to measure weight in kilograms.
