    The object being measured is “BMI” or body mass index. The specific attributes being measured are weight and height. The units used to measure each attribute will be Kilograms or pounds to measure weight divided by the height in meters squared or inches squared times 703. Since the U.S. uses customary units, I will be using pounds divided by inches squared times 703. This could be a cross-curricular connections between math and Physical Ed./health. Since there is a high incidence of obesity among children in the U.S. this measurement task would be beneficial. Here is a link for finding BMI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LfANanF0Dg
