Testimonials

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!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

    • Year 3 programme of study
      • KS2.Y3.M – Measurement

        • Pupils should be taught to:

          • KS2.Y3.M.1 – Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)

  • Year 3
    • Measurement and Geometry
      • Using units of measurement

        • ACMMG061 – Measure, order and compare objects using familiar metric units of length, mass and capacity

  • 4 – Year 4
    • 4.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 4.GM.1 – Measure the lengths, areas, volumes or capacities, weights, and temperatures of objects and the duration of events, reading scales to the nearest whole number and applying addition, subtraction, and simple multiplication to standard units

  • 5 – Year 5
    • 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

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 2.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 2.MD.5 – Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
