### UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

- Estimating and measuring temperatures in the
environment in Fahrenheit and Celsius require the use of real thermometers.
- A variety of physical models (e.g.,
circular and linear) should be used to represent the temperature determined by
a real thermometer.
- The symbols for degrees in Celsius (°C)
and degrees in Fahrenheit (°F) should be used to write temperatures.
- Celsius and Fahrenheit temperatures should
be related to everyday occurrences by measuring things found in the student’s
environment (e.g., the temperature of the classroom; temperature on the
playground; temperature of warm and cold liquids; body temperature).
- At
this level, scale increments should be limited to one or two.

### ESSENTIALS

**The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to**

- Read
Celsius and Fahrenheit temperatures to the nearest degree using real
thermometers, physical models, or pictorial representations.
