United Kingdom – National Curriculum expand/collapse

  • KS2 – Key Stage 2
    • 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)

United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

  • 4 – Grade 4
    • 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), ...
