## Reflection: Pre-Tests Metric Measurement: Playing with Non Standard Measurement & a CCSS Pre test - Section 2: Pre testing ideas about metric measurement

Many made good guesses but none of them could convert on the charts. No one crossed unit measurements though. Conversions were very weak in word problems.
