Unit Overview
Summary: 3 Credit Internal Assessment

Metric conversion & scales, practical measuring, estimation, areas, perimeter, volume, modelling, capacity, distance, speed, time, density, flow & pressure

  • Convert between metric units, using decimals.
  • Deduce and use formulae to find the perimeters and areas of polygons, and volumes of prisms.
  • Find the perimeters and areas of circles and composite shapes and the volumes of prisms, including cylinders.
  • Apply the relationships between units in the metric system, including the units for measuring different attributes and derived measures.
  • Calculate volumes, including prisms, pyramids, cones, and spheres, using formulae.
