8 Summary

Congratulations for making it to the end of the first week in Succeed with maths – Part 2. You will use the skills that you have developed this week as you work through Week 2, which will introduce the measurement of volume and mass. So try and think back to what you have learnt as you continue your studies, particularly when converting between units.

You should now be able to:

  • understand how the International System (SI) is formulated
  • understand the more common SI units for length and convert between them
  • recognise the more common imperial units for length and convert between these
  • understand how the SI and imperial units of length relate to each other.
