Measurement in Mathematics is series of eight books aimed at teaching the topic of ‘measurement’ to pupils from reception through to year Book 6 is aimed at children who are in year 5 and 6. Each book covers the following topics at the appropriate level: Length.

In mathematical analysis, a measure on a set is a systematic way to assign a number to each suitable subset of that set, intuitively interpreted as its size. In this sense, a measure is a generalization of the concepts of length, area, and volume. A particularly important example is the Lebesgue measure on a Euclidean space, which assigns the conventional length, area, and volume of Euclidean.
