Nets, Measurement, Area, Volume, Capacity and Mass
‘Extreme Maths’* Rotation - Task Three - students had to construct cubes in order to conceptualise the relationship between Area, Volume, Capacity and Mass as well as displaying measurement skills with a focus on accuracy.
We first looked at nets and a range of area and volume concepts
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 (Area)
10 x 10 x 10 = 1000cm3 (10 cubed- Volume)
· 1000cm3 = 1000ml (Capacity)
· 1000ml = 1L (conversion)
· 1000ml of water = 1000gms (1 Kg) (Mass)
We then tested our containers to confirm the above measurement facts.
*Extreme maths provides students with practical activities the require mathematical thinking, problem solving and collaboration. Within each challenge students will receive needs based clinics and moment in time Teaching.
