Maths - measuring

The teaching of measuring includes length, capacity, weight and scale. This work is introduced practically and then formally.

For guidance on teaching methods and how maths is taught in schools, please see the menu on the right. 


There are worksheets here on length, capacity, cubic centimetres, weight  and scale. Introduce these concepts to your child by physically measuring the length of their bed, a book etc. Capacity can be experienced in a practical manner playing with water and using a measuring jug. Have fun together doing this.
