This portfolio is designed for students to:

o Demonstrate proper measurement techniques and have an understanding of basic units and sources of error in their labs and calculations.

o Understand how thermometers work and demonstrate how to properly read them

o Review use and conversion of metric length units, area & volume.

o Give the student an appreciation of the stuggle America is going through in trying to get the citizenry to accept change to an easier system of measurement.

o Practice logical reasoning and six traits writing skill.
