Today as part of our current maths focus on measurement we constructed cubes in order to conceptualise the relationship between Area, Volume, Capacity and Mass
We also looked at nets and a range of area and volume concepts (geometry and measurement)
The task was to create a 10cm x 10cm x 10cm cube (container)
If correctly constructed, with accurate measurements the container should hold 1 litre of water.
Area, Volume, Capacity and Weight
· 10 x 10 Surface area of one face 100cm2
10 x 10 x 10 = 1000cm3 (10 cubed)
· 1000cm3 = 1000ml
· 1000ml = 1L
· 1000ml of water = 1000gms (1 Kg)
We then tested our containers to confirm the above measurement facts.
