Girls, especially girls from low-income families, display weaker measurement knowledge than boys. Geometric measurement—such as linear measurement, area, perimeter, volume, surface area, and angle measurement—is integral to STEM performance. This session will provide instructional ideas for helping girls (and boys!) develop measurement skill through art.
