5 Reading scales
You may need to read a scale to measure out an amount of liquid, read a measurement on a ruler, weigh out ingredients for a recipe or to take someone’s temperature.
Reading scales can be tricky because every scale is different.
To read a scale correctly, you need to ask yourself:
What does the scale go up in? What steps or intervals does it use?
Note: The marks on a scale may be referred to as any of the following: intervals, steps, increments or markers. These terms are often used interchangeably.
