Elementary school math teaching benchmarks in measurement and data include descriptions and estimates of length, angles, weight, and capacity that shift to applications such as telling time, working with money, and interpreting data. These provide skills that are indispensable in common daily activities such as finances and quantifying dimensions.

The math vocabulary lists are based on the Common Core Elementary Math Standards. VocabularySpellingCity has selected the elementary math words that apply to the key math concepts and written level-appropriate elementary math definitions combined with meaningful example sentences. Elementary students can use these materials for reinforcement to build understanding or assessment. Teachers can import the lists into their account and then edit or extend the lists for their own purposes.

Common Core State Standards Overview for Elementary School - Measurement & Data

  • Describe and compare measurable attributes.
  • Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category
  • Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units.
  • Tell and write time.
  • Represent and interpret data.
  • Measure and estimate lengths in standard units.
  • Relate addition and subtraction to length.
  • Work with time and money.
  • Represent and interpret data.
  • Solve problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects.
  • Represent and interpret data. Geometric measurement: understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and to addition.
  • Geometric measurement: recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measures.
  • Solve problems involving the four operations, and identify and explain patterns in arithmetic.
  • Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
  • Represent and interpret data.
  • Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles.
  • Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.
  • Represent and interpret data.
  • Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.

VocabularySpellingCity provides games, worksheets, and quizzes that help establish a cognizance of words describing standard units, their relationships to size, and how they are added and subtracted. This leads to more complex math vocabulary to illustrate concepts such as unit conversion and geometric measurement. Common core standards require students to be able to describe and associate measurable attributes indirectly and by repeating units of length. The definitions learned in this section are applied in various sciences and continue to be used in middle and high school. The measurement & data word lists below deliver the necessary means to acquire the related mathematical skills and measure up to the highest expectations.
