Week 2: Measurement of mass and volume
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!

This week you’re going to finish your study of measurement by covering mass and volume. You’ll also get more practice at converting between units to continue to build your confidence.

After this week’s study, you should be able to:
- understand the more common SI units for mass and volume, and convert between them
- recognise the more common imperial units for mass and volume, and convert between these
- understand how the SI and imperial units of mass and volume relate to each other.
