#### Level: E3, L1, L2

Inspired by Jane Russell’s place value slider (see below), this slider allows for easy conversion of metric units. I printed the sliders on A3 paper so there would be enough to pull from both sides. I used different colours for weight, distance and capacity.

An illustrated example shows how to use the sliders. Sets of 4 sliders are on different pages to make it easier to print on different colour paper. A photograph of the finsihed slider i salso availalbe below

## Metric units of measure - conversions

#### Level: E3, L1, L2

This Powerpoint presentation describes, with examples, a simple method to convert between metric units. The method is based on a table similar to a place value table.

I use this method over 3 or 4 lessons. In the first lesson I introduce the table using distance units and encourage the students to remember the number of columns and the headings.
