# Common Core MATH 1 MD 2 Grade 1 Measurement And Data Measure Lengths Indirectly And By Iterating Length Units

Back**Measurement And Data: Measure Lengths Indirectly And By Iterating Length Units.**

Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.
