Length mass and capacity

Length, Mass

and Capacity


Length mass and capacity

Today we will be learning to:

  • use standard metric and imperial units for measuring capacity

  • convert from metric to imperial units

  • plot a conversion graph.

Main Activity

Today we are going to use metric and imperial units for measuring capacity.


These lines are measured in cm what do they measure in mm

These lines are measured in cm. What do they measure in mm?

1.2cm

12mm

4.4cm

44mm

13.6cm

136mm

9.7cm

97mm


These things are measured in metres what is the height in centimetres

These things are measured in metres. What is the height in centimetres?

10.8m

1080cm

3.42m

1.86m

342cm

186cm


Length mass and capacity

1 inch = 2.5 centimetres

1 foot = 30 centimetres

3.3 feet = 1 metre

1 yard = 90 centimetres

1760 yards = 1 mile

1 mile = 1600 metres (1.6km)

Here are the equivalents. They are approximate.
