Maths Task - Units of Measurement
MATHS- SUMMER TERM WEEK 4- UNITS OF MEASUREMENT
For the next few weeks, we thought we'd set you something a little bit different away (not the Maths Factor).
In Year 2 you should have all been introduced to the different units of measurement (cm,ml,g,ºC etc) and how to read scales of these measurements going up in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. In Year 3, we have done lots of work on length already- measuring items around the room and ourselves!
This week you will be refreshing your knowledge of scales using these different units of measurement for each session. Next week you will be having a go at problem solving using this knowledge. At the bottom of this page the worksheets for each lesson have been organised into each session. Please use these for the work this week. Answers can be written on printouts or on separate pieces of paper- whatever works best for you! Don't forget there are often lots of examples of scales in your houses so feel free to get practical for some of these sessions.
The FIVE sessions consist of:
SESSION 1- TEMPERATURE:
Reading the scales and the tasks carefully to either find the temperature or mark it on the thermometer.
SESSION 2- MASS (Part 1):
In this session please use the worksheets below to read the scales and answer the questions.
SESSION 3- MASS (PART 2):
With your refreshed knowledge of mass, go around your house and first estimate the different weights of each object. (Remember estimate means take a guess!) Once you have done this, measure each of those items using a scale. Were any of your estimates close? Feel free to use the template provided.
SESSION 4- VOLUME:
This session is about using ml,cl and l. Have a look at the sheets and see if you can correctly answer the questions.
SESSION 5- LENGTH:
As you've had plenty of measuring length in school have a go at a few of the sheets in the resources below. You could even go round your house measuring different objects if you wanted to!
As always, please contact your teachers if you would like any help or advice.
