T.I.P.S.

Students need to solve reallife problems involving estimating and measuring length. Reallife problems may include the actual measuring of objects, finding the difference between already measured objects, or finding the total length of multiple objects or distances.
Example

Frankie measured his forearm with a yardstick and recorded the length as 15 inches. Then, he measured his upper arm and realized it’s the same length.
a) About how long is one of Frankie’s arms?b) What is the total length of both of Frankie’s arms?
