Units of Measurement – Positives and Negatives

Last week was the first week for Town of StarFall. Every other Monday, I will have a list of facts and anything else educational as part of my blog. You might want to see some interesting facts about the world, as I’ll share it here.

If you want to know, math is my strong subject in school. I may have some math as part of my blog. Today’s entry will be about the units of measurement, and what are the positives and negatives of measuring. An increase in a measurement is positive, but a decrease is negative.

Of course, there is more than what I stated, but this is all I can name today. If you have any more to say, or if I got some wrong, feel free to comment.
