Geometric measures

Geometric measures is a theme within connecting measurement and decimals. Links to relevant activities and resources are on the right hand side of this page. 

Geometric measures are, in essence, all those measures that have a geometric component. In school mathematics the term can be used to encompass the process of measuring (usually using a tool, for example a ruler or an angle measurer) and the formulae used to compute length-related properties of geometric objects, such as area or volume (in the case of formulae, the term mensuration can be used).
