#### United Kingdom – National Curriculum expand/collapse

• ##### KS2.Ma3 – Shape, space and measures
• Knowledge, skills and understanding

• Understanding measures

• KS2.Ma3.4 – Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Ma3.4.a – Recognise the need for standard units of length, mass and capacity, choose which ones are suitable for a task, and use them to make sensible estimates in everyday situations; convert one metric unit to another [for example, convert 3.17kg to 3170g] ; know the rough metric equivalents of imperial units still in daily use

• KS2.Ma3.4.b – Recognise that measurement is approximate; choose and use suitable measuring instruments for a task; interpret numbers and read scales with increasing accuracy; record measurements using decimal notation

• Using and applying shape, space and measures

• KS2.Ma3.1 – Pupils should be taught to:

• Problem solving

• KS2.Ma3.1.b – Select and use appropriate calculation skills to solve geometrical problems

• ##### KS2.Ma2 – Number and algebra
• Knowledge, skills and understanding

• Numbers and the number system

• KS2.Ma2.2 – Pupils should be taught to:

• Decimals

• KS2.Ma2.2.i – Understand and use decimal notation for tenths and hundredths in context [for example, order amounts of money, round a sum of money to the nearest pound, convert a length such as 1.36 metres to centimetres and vice versa]; locate on a number line, and order, a set of numbers or measurements; then recognise thousandths (only in metric measurements)

#### Australia – Australian Curriculum expand/collapse

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Using units of measurement

• ACMMG084 – Use scaled instruments to measure and compare lengths, masses, capacities and temperatures

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Using units of measurement

• ACMMG108 – Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass

• ##### Number and Algebra
• Fractions and decimals

• ACMNA127 – Find a simple fraction of a quantity where the result is a whole number, with and without digital technologies

• ##### Measurement and Geometry

#### New Zealand – National Standards expand/collapse

• ##### 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 5.GM.1 – Measure time and the attributes of objects, choosing appropriate standard units and working with them to the nearest tenth

• ##### 7.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 7.GM.1 – Measure time and the attributes of objects, using metric and other standard measures

• 7.GM.2 – Make simple conversions between units, using whole numbers

#### United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

• ##### 4.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 4.MD.1 – Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...

• ##### 5.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 5.MD.1 – Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.
