Converting metric measures of length info sheet

Submitted by Nikki Gilbey on Thu, 2013-10-03 14:29

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.
