Level: L2

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

21 interesting (and challenging!) questions for practice with converting between metric and imperial measurements. Question pages can be divided amongst the class and then answers can be shared. Extension ideas could include measuring learners’ feet/ height and comparing them to the records.

Editor’s note
Also provides practice with rounding decimals to a sensible number of decimal places. *The answer sheet, which includes detailed working out, is only available to site contributors.

Numeracy: Functional Maths - measures, shape, money, MSS1/E2.5, MSS1/E3.5, MSS1/L1.6, MSS1/L1.7, MSS1/L2.5

Free tags: convert, measure, metric, Metric units

Context: Construction Carpentry Plumbing

Level: E2, E3, L1, L2

Resource type: Handout or guide, Poster, Reference card

My L1 learners were really struggling to remember what to do to convert units of measurement and were getting very confused at the initial stage, so I made this resource and laminated it so that it was available for them to look at if they couldn’t remember. Could also be made into a poster.

A resource I created to support my students getting used to what they needed to divide or multiply by to convert between units. Can easily be laminated for repeated use, or increased in size and turned in to a poster.

Metric and Imperial measurements

Numeracy: Functional Maths - measures, shape, money, MSS1/L1.7, MSS1/L2.5

Context: Construction Carpentry Plumbing

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Informative presentation

In the construction trades there is still a need for some students to understand the difference between Imperial and metric units of measure. This is a Powerpoint presentation to help with this. I have used it with E3 and L1 students.

Editor’s note
I have classified this as L1 and L2.

Metric units slider

Submitted by Joaquin Llorente on Fri, 2012-01-20 10:04

Numeracy: Functional Maths - measures, shape, money, MSS1/E3.5, MSS1/E3.6, MSS1/E3.7, MSS1/L1.7, MSS1/L2.5

Resource type: Hands-on / practical activity

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

The room - Functional Maths challenge

Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

A scaffolded investigation created for my Level 1 numeracy group but ideal for, and fully mapped to, L1-2 Functional maths.
Part 1 involves reading a description of a room and drawing simple scale diagrams (a grid is provided) before pricing up a carpet from a discount company.
Part 2 is more complex: calculate the length of skirting board, wallpaper, paint, dado rail and door framing required.

Draw a scale diagram of a room and then see if you can fit all the furniture in. Two identical sheets are provided – the only difference is the way the scale is expressed. Also includes perimeter and area questions. Fully mapped to L1-2 Functional Maths and adult numeracy.

Metric units of measure - conversions

Submitted by Joaquin Llorente on Thu, 2011-04-14 11:11

Numeracy: Functional Maths - measures, shape, money, MSS1/E3.5, MSS1/E3.6, MSS1/E3.7, MSS1/L1.7, MSS1/L2.5

Resource type: Interactive presentation, Teaching idea

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.
