Week 2: Measurement of mass and volume

Introduction

This week follows on from Week 1, which looked at measurement of length in both the International System (SI) and imperial, to consider two other common measurements: mass and volume. As well as learning about the units for these measurements in both systems, you’ll get much more practice in converting between units. Conversions can often be a challenge, so the more practice you get with this the better!

  • understand the more common SI units for mass and volume, and convert between them

  • understand how the SI and imperial units of mass and volume relate to each other.
