Measurement

L.O – To understand the difference between metric and imperial units and be able to confidently convert between them

Metric Units

Length – mm, cm, m, km

Weight – g, kg, tonnes

Volume – mm3, cm3, m3, ml, litres

Learn these common metric conversions;  Imperial Units

Length – inches, feet, yards, miles

Weight – ounces, pounds, stones, tons

Volume – gallons, pints

Learn these common imperial conversions; Metric – Imperial Conversions

Learn these metric – imperial conversions Example 1:

Convert 16 inches into cm

• 1 inch = 2.54cm
• We need to convert inches into cm, therefore we need to multiply by 2.54 • 16 x 2.54 = 40.64cm

Example 2:

Convert 76cm into inches

• 1 inch = 2.54cm
• We need to convert cm into inches, therefore we need to divide by 2.54 • 76/2.54 = 29.9 inches

It is important to recognise whether to multiply or divide.

To help with this you can;

• follow the ‘arrows’ method as shown in the examples

e.g. when converting from inches into cm, we know that inches are larger than cm (because 1inch = 2.54cm), therefore we need to multiply in order to obtain a larger number than we began with.

Example 3:

Convert 10.5 gallons into litres

• 1 gallon = 4.5 litres
• We need to convert gallons into litres, therefore we need to multiply by 4.5 • 5 x 4.5 = 47.25 litres #### Previous  1 2 3 4 5 7 10 11 12  Next
