Las Vegas, Nevada
1.11 TSW measure length using appropriate metric units.
1.12 TSW measure mass using appropriate metric units
1.13 TSW measure volume using appropriate metric units
1.14 TSW measure temperature using the Celsius scale.
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS: Complete one "layer" before going on to
another layer. No more than two assignments will be checked off, by
your teacher, on any one day, in any layer. Each assignment has a point
value based on the amount of time and effort necessary to complete that
task. You must earn the required number of points n any one layer
before moving to the next layer.
Use your password and user name to access all reading and web site
assignments. Be prepared to discuss and answer questions about each of
your assignments. Failure to do so will result in no credit for that
assignment. When appropriate, you may work with a partner or partners,
but you must be able to answer the teacher's questions without any
Section 1. Basic understanding. 60 points (C): 50 points necessary

layer must be completed before beginning the (B) layer. Metrics
