What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 5 programme of study
• KS2.Y5.M – Measurement

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y5.M.7 – Use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [for example, length, mass, volume, money] using decimal notation, including scaling

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

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

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

• ACMMG109 – Calculate the perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 7.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 7.GM.3 – Use side or edge lengths to find the perimeters and areas of rectangles and parallelograms and the volumes of cuboids, given whole-number dimensions

## United States – Common Core State Standards

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

• 3.MD.7 – Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.

• 3.MD.7.b – Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.

• ##### 5.NF – Number & Operations—Fractions
• Mathematics

• 5.NF.4 – Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.

• 5.NF.4.b – Find the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths by tiling it with unit squares of the appropriate unit fraction side lengths, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths. Multiply fractional side lengths to find areas of rectangles, and represent fraction products as rectangular areas.
