Measurement is something we do all the time. Sometimes we estimate, and at other times we take out a ruler and measure the size of a room. Sometimes measurements, like those in space, seem way beyond our comprehension. In this publication, we look at measurement from a variety of perspectives across the curriculum. We look as the ways we measure, some unusual measurements like the Smoot, how surveyors measured to build a canal in 1823, and how doctors use measurement. We hope this publication will cause students to think about some new ways to measure and how very important measurement is.
