Big Ideas: Measurements given in large units can be written as an equivalent amount in a smaller unit by using multiplication. Any number, measure, numerical expression, algebraic expression, or equation can be represented in an infinite number of ways that have the same value. In this task, students will be applying their knowledge of metric unit conversions measuring mass in order to solve a multi-step problem. They will also be applying their knowledge of addition and multiplication and will be expected to represent their answer with visual models and equations. Vocabulary: kilogram, hectogram, dekagram, gram Special Materials: Metric unit conversion chart (as a support for struggling students)
