slide1

Length, Mass

and Capacity

slide2

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.
slide3

Mental Activity

We are going metric measures.

You will have 5 seconds to answer each question

slide11

Main Activity

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

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

slide14

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.

slide15

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)

How many millimetres are there in 4 inches?

slide16

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)

How many centimetres are there in 2 feet?

slide17

Use your rulers and tape measures to measure objects around the classroom in both metric and imperial

slide31

1 litre = 1.75 pints

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

Here are the equivalents. They are approximate.

slide32

1 litre = 1.75 pints

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many pints are there in 4 litres?

slide33

1 litre = 1.75 pints

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many gallons are there in 27 litres?

slide34

1 litre = 1.75 pints

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many millilitres are there in8 tablespoons?

slide35

1 litre = 1.75 pints

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

Approx 5 litres = 8 pints = 1 gallon

Remember a litre and a quarter is about a pint and three quaters

slide36

1 litre = 1.75 pints

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many litres in 3 gallons

slide37

1 litre = 1.75 pints

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

What might the conversion graph look like?

slide38

Group Work

Work in pairs to draw a conversion graph for 1 gallon = 4.5 litres. Write six questions for your graph. Swap with another pair and find the answers to their questions.
