Things to remember:
capacity is the amount of liquid a container can hold
volume is how much liquid is in the container
Measuring in litres and millilitre
A litre is much more than a millilitre.
1 litre = 1000 millilitres
We shorten litres to ‘l’ and we can shorten millilitres to 'ml'.
So we might also say:
1 l = 1000 ml
Today, you will be adding and subtracting volume and capacity. You have many strategies for this: number lines can help you count on or count back, you can partition your numbers before you add and subtract or you can have a go at column addition and subtraction. Use the strategy that you are comfortable with. I have uploaded a BBC Bitesize video to help - watch the videos/ slides but don't worry about the worksheets; our worksheets are below. When you are ready, have a go at the sheets below.
Other activities can be found on Mathletics or your could return to the links to activities on Discovery education on Monday's page.
I look forward to seeing your work later.
