Samples: Reading a measuring scale to 1000mL tutorial. Measuring mass using the kilogram (kg).
Using and applying shape, space and measures
KS2.Ma3.1 – Pupils should be taught to:
Problem solving
KS2.Ma3.1.a – Recognise the need for standard units of measurement

Mathematics
3.MD.2 – Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). (Excludes multiplicative comparison problems (problems involving notions of “times as much”; see Glossary, Table 2 http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards/mathematics/glossary/glossary/ ). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem. (Excludes compound units such as cm3 and finding the geometric volume of a container.)

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), ...
Samples: Measuring length in metres tutorial. Common fractions of a kilogram.
4.MD.2 – Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
