Year 6: Measurement
Solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to three decimal places where appropriate
Use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to three decimal places
Convert between miles and kilometres recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa
Recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes
Calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles
Calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units, including cubic centimetres (cm3) and cubic metres (m3), and extending to other units [for example, mm3 and km3].
|Perimeter of Shapes||
Find the perimeter of a variety of 2d shapes, or of compound shapes.
|Balancing scales - convert between g and kg||
The scale is loaded with between 1 and 4 weights. The user then has to balance the scales, converting between g and kg in the process. There is a great deal of control over the level.
A great starter to explore addition, subtraction / difference and partitioning as well as the relationship between grams and kilog More…rams. Levels include converting whole kg to g (and vice versa), converting fractions of kg (eg 1/4kg = 250g) and weights in kg to 1 and 2 decimal places.
|Temperature - Word Problems||
Answer questions about the temperature around the world. Includes levels involving comparing temperatures, and comparing poistive and negative temperatures.
|Balancing Scales g and kg||
Add weights to either pan until they are balanced. Can be used to teach addition, subtraction, partitioning, and mass, as well as developing an understanding of the equals sign.
|Reading Scales - Capacity Word Problems||
Read the scales on the measuring cylinder and answer word problems involving addition and subtraction. Play against the clock for points.
Read a variety of numbered and partially numbered scales. Measure mass, capacity and temperature.

There are three choices of grid size: 5 by 5, 10 by 10 or 20 by 20. The grid can be hidden or replaced by a pin board around the points of which rubber bands can be stretched.
