# MSS1/E2.7

MSS1/E2.7 Read, estimate, measure and compare capacity using common non-standard and standard units (e.g. litre, cupful). (a) understand that non-standard units are not agreed measures and can therefore vary (b) understand that standard measures are fixed (c) know that a litre is a metric unit of weight and have an idea of the amount relative to familiar quantities, (e.g. such as cartons or bottles of milk and other drinks) and to non-standard measures, e.g. more than a cup. (d) recognise and write litre in full and abbreviated l (e) understand litre divisions on a simple scale (f) know that millilitre is a metric unit used for smaller quantities and abbreviated to ml
