Readers explore many different kinds of measurements as well as the mathematical formulas behind them. Helpful diagrams and real-world examples allow readers to form a strong understanding of concepts such as time, area, and weight. Readers are presented with simple, hands-on math problems to encourage them to apply what they are learning as they read.
