MEASUREMENT AND FORMULAS

Premiere Date:Thursday, May 05, 2005

This episode focuses on measurements, using formulas, different units of measurement, and presents a a variety of appropriate applications. It helps to picture the size of an object in a problem situation. Calculations and formulas should give the necessary answers but its good to double check that the answers are reasonable. The documentary segments feature carpenters and construction workers as they estimate and measure different jobs, a baker converting amounts into different quantities, a tool and die apprentice working with very exacting measurements, and people who are now starting to convert standard US measurements into the metric system. The first dramatic segment presents a nurse in a doctor's office who is learning to use the metric system and record a patient's health record. The second dramatic segment concerns a woman trying to figure out if there is enough storage room for a large order she may purchase.
