Preparing Your Students for the
Ohio Graduation Test in Mathematics

Strand Resources:
Measurement

 

Ohio Graduation Test Prep Gif

CT4ME has identified resources related to each benchmark of the Ohio Mathematics Academic Content Standards that students should have mastered by the end of the grades 8-10 program. 

Identify the benchmark (A-F) for review in Measurement.  Below the benchmark, you will find Web resources for reviewing the concept and practice problems.

Students should be able to review on their own using these resources.  If you are not an Ohio educator, these resources can still benefit your test prep efforts, as benchmarks in other states are similarly stated.

Download the Test Prep Strand Booklet

Measurement (pdf) This test prep booklet (about 200 KB) is designed to help you monitor your progress toward mastery of each benchmark in this strand.  You can print the entire booklet, or just those pages for benchmarks you need to work on.  Write notes in the booklet next to each resource you use in your review.

Adobe Reader GifIf needed, download Adobe Acrobat Reader, free software for viewing and printing PDF files.

Java GifYou might need to download Java, a free plug-in to interact with virtual manipulatives on this page.

What is Measurement?

 

Measurement--assigning numbers to something according to a rule

 

Benchmarks in Measurement

 

Benchmarks in this strand have been correlated to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics for the Conceptual Category (CC), Domain (D), and Cluster (C).
