Link to Measuring Unit Projects

We start out with measuring because this is the first consideration we must take into account before we can do anything else. In this unit we will review reading various measuring devices including: standard rulers, protractors and proportion wheel. We will also work with basic math skills used in everyday work related activities.

These are skills that all layout and design is based on. Before Michelangelo could design the murals for the Sistine Chapel he had to create a detailed scale drawing of his image area, the ceiling and later, the alter wall. Web page, business card, brochure layout, Renaissance master piece, all need to be accurately measured before the work of layout and design can begin.
