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
Samples: Converting between Kilometres and Metres tutorial. Common fractions of a kilogram.
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
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.b – Select and use appropriate calculation skills to solve geometrical problems
Samples: Measuring length in metres tutorial. Measure using square centimetres.
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)
Samples: Placing decimals on a number line tutorial. Rounding Decimals to Whole Numbers.
Using units of measurement
ACMMG084 – Use scaled instruments to measure and compare lengths, masses, capacities and temperatures
Samples: Measuring length in metres tutorial. Measuring in millimetres tutorial. Calculating perimeter tutorial.
Using units of measurement
ACMMG108 – Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass
Samples: Converting between Kilometres and Metres tutorial.
Fractions and decimals
ACMNA127 – Find a simple fraction of a quantity where the result is a whole number, with and without digital technologies
Samples: Equivalent Fractions. Reducing a fraction to its simplest form tutorial.
Using units of measurement
ACMMG136 – Convert between common metric units of length, mass and capacity
Samples: Converting between Kilometres and Metres tutorial.
5.GM.1 – Measure time and the attributes of objects, choosing appropriate standard units and working with them to the nearest tenth
Samples: Measuring length in metres tutorial. Measuring in millimetres tutorial. Calculating perimeter tutorial.
6.GM.1 – Measure time and the attributes of objects, choosing appropriate standard units
Samples: Converting between Kilometres and Metres tutorial.
7.GM.1 – Measure time and the attributes of objects, using metric and other standard measures
Samples: Fractions, Decimals and Perimeter. Common fractions of a kilogram. Calculations involving mass: Activity 1.
7.GM.2 – Make simple conversions between units, using whole numbers
Samples: Calculating the volume of rectangular prisms tutorial. Comparing the volume of liquids tutorial.
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: Converting between grams and kilograms. Common fractions of a kilogram. Convert tonnes to kilograms.
