5 Session 2 summary

You have now completed Session 2, ‘Units of measure’. If you have identified any areas that you need to work on, please ensure you refer to this section of the course and retry the activities.

You should now be able to:

  • convert between measurements in the same system (e.g. grams and kilograms) and those in different systems (e.g. litres and gallons)

  • use exchange rates to convert currencies

  • work with time and timetables

  • work out the average speed of a journey using a formula.
