In this lesson, we will explore common units and tools to use when estimating measurements. We will look at when it is appropriate and not appropriate to use litres, millilitres, centimetres, metres and more.

In this lesson, we will investigate the relationship between centimetres and millimetres. We will convert between both types of measurement and learn about fractional representations of centimetres as millimetres.

In this lesson, we will investigate the relationship between centimetres and metres. We will convert between both types of measurement and learn about fractional representations of metres as centremetres.

In this lesson, we will investigate the relationship between different scales of measurement. We will learn about conversion strategies for measurements of length, capacity, and mass (specifically, cm, mm, m, km, l, ml, g, kg).

In this lesson, we will use our knowledge about conversions between units of measure to help us arrange different measurements in ascending order of size, and compare using 'greater than' and 'less than' statements.

In this lesson, we will investigate a problem around incremental increases of time. We will look at the effect of adding 8 minutes on to each period in a sequence of training sessions for an athlete.

In this lesson, we will investiate a money problem involving calculating the number of combinations of different types of coin we could have that add to the same total.

In this lesson, we will investigate a problem of measurement which involves a given total length of ribbon that is made up of two different colour strips of different lengths and quantities. Here we model how one could calculate how many of each colour strip have been used.

In this lesson, we will investigate a money problem involving coins of unknown value being placed into 3 bags. Using truth statements as clues, we will model how to determine what the value of the coins are, and how many are in each bag.

In this lesson, we will explore how to make sums of money using different coins, and investigate how many ways we can make a set amount of money using different coins.

In this lesson, we will develop our skills in planning how to solve problems involving mass. We will investigate and compare measurements using grams and kilograms.

In this lesson, we will develop our skills in planning how to solve, and then solving, a money problem using an educated guess and check strategy.

In this lesson, we will develop our skills in planning how to solve, and then solving, a money problem using a trial and improvement strategy.

In this lesson, we will develop our skills in planning how to solve, and then solving, a fractional measurement problem. The problem involves determining what lengths of wood could be used in various combinations to achieve a given length.

In this lesson, we will continue to develop our skills in planning how to solve, and then solving, a fractional measurement problem. The problem is a continuation of determining what lengths of wood could be used in various combinations to achieve a given length.
