Measuring Length Metric Units of Measurement Imperial Units of Measurement Millimetres (mm) Centimetres (cm) Metres (m) Kilometres (km) Inches Feet yards miles Most things we now measure in metric units. However for distances to towns and peoples heights we tend to still use imperial measurements. The length of my pencil is 19cm My dad is 6 foot 2 inches tall (6 2) Newcastle is 16 miles away.
10km1km100m10m1m Understanding Length This digit is worth 10km. This digit is worth 1km. There are 10 of these in 10km This digit is worth 100m. There are 10 of these in 1km This digit is worth 10m. There are 10 of these in 100m. This digit is worth 1m. There are 10 of these in 10 metres. …and 1,000 metres in a kilometre!
Understanding Length Click on the question mark to find out the missing measurement. Remember: 10mm = 1cm 100cm = 1 metre 1,000 metres = 1km mmcmmetres 50mm5cm0.05m 20mm2cm0.02m 150mm15cm0.15m 2,100mm210cm2.1m 1,500mm150cm1.5m metreskm 250m0.25km 2,150m2.15km 1,750m1.75km 150m0.15km 5,200m5.2km ?? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Choosing Units of Measurement Which unit of measurement would you use to measure these objects? Millimetres (mm)Centimetres (cm)Metres (m)Kilometres (km) The length of my fingernail The distance to Manchester The length of the classroom The length of a pencil Height of your friend The distance to your holiday destination The height of a building The thickness of a book
Measuring Capacity Capacity is measured in millilitres (ml). There are 1,000ml in a litre. A pint of milk contains 568ml of milk. Click on the object to see how many ml everyday objects use. A family bottle of lemonade contains 2 litres. A teaspoon of medicine contains 5ml. A soft drink can contains 300ml A jug contains 1,000ml (1 litre)
Using a Measuring Container Click on each object to see how much water it contains: 20ml 40ml 60ml 80ml 100ml 120ml 140ml 0ml
Understanding Capacity Click on the question mark to find out the missing measurement. Remember: 1,000ml = 1L Millilitres (ml)Litres (l) 250ml0.25L 2,950ml2.95L 380ml0.38L 720ml0.72L 50ml0.05L ? ? ? ? ? Millilitres (ml)Litres (L) 150ml0.15L 2,150ml2.15L 650ml0.65L 9,500ml9.5L 450ml0.45L ? ? ? ? ?
Perimeter Perimeter is how long a shape is around the outside. 3cm 6cm 3cm 6cm + 6cm + 3cm + 3cm = 18cm 2cm 8cm 2cm 8cm + 8cm + 2cm + 2cm = 20cm 5cm 3cm 5cm 5cm + 5cm + 3cm + 3cm = 16cm
Perimeter is how long a shape is around the outside. 12cm 6cm 12cm 6cm 6cm +12cm + 6cm = The perimeter is 36cm Perimeter
Can you work out the perimeter of these shapes? A Square 5cm A Rectangle 3cm 6cm 4cm The square has a perimeter of 20cm (5cm + 5cm + 5cm + 5cm) The rectangle has a perimeter of 18cm (3cm + 6cm + 3cm + 6cm) The triangle has a perimeter of 12cm (4cm + 4cm + 4cm)
Can you work out the perimeter of these shapes? A Rhombus 6cm An Isosceles Triangle 4cm 24cm A Rectangle 7cm 40 cm 12cm 8cm 5cm 8cm A perimeter of 24cm A perimeter of 18cm A perimeter of 128cm A perimeter of 40cm (Not all sides are labelled!)
The area is how much space a shape takes up. Calculating Area This shape has an area of 20cm² (There are 20 1cm squares inside) This shape has an area of 12cm².
What is the area of each shape? Click on the shapes to reveal each answer. Calculating Area 16cm² 14cm² 24cm²
Watch carefully, and you will also notice there is a quick way of calculating area. Calculating Area 16cm² 24cm² 4cm 2cm 8cm 4cm 6cm The quick way of calculating area is to multiply length x width.
