# Metric Maths πππ½ββοΈπ₯

Year 6 we need your help, could you help us to solve the following measuring problems?

What are metric measures?

What unit of measure is best to measure liquids?

Liquid challenge

Are centimetres the best way to measure the length of objects?

Length challenge

What is the difference between grams and kilograms?

Weight challenge

1. #### Timothy C.

What unit of measure is best to measure liquids?
The unit of measurement that would be the best is capacity/volume.
Liquid challenge
76cm
Around 4cm.
Are centimetres the best way to measure the length of objects?

• #### Timothy C.

No, Overall there are many units of measurements in length which are far greater than cm such as metres if not km. Well it depends if the object is large or small compared to cm. The units in length are: Meters, Centimetres, Millimetres, kilometres, angstrom(A), decametre, Hectometre, Inches, decimetres, feet, yards, Astronomical units, Spans, Miles, Micrometres, Mega(-) metres as well as many more length units.
What is the difference between grams and kilograms?
The difference between grams and kilograms is that 1km is 1000g so grams are 1000 times smaller that km and kg is 1000 times bigger than grams.
Weight challenge
The front one gets 7350 points, the left one would get 8200 points and the right one would get 6450 points.

Q1)Litres
Q2)70cm
Q3)5cm
Q4)I would estimate the height of the tree by comparing with the height of myself or one of my friends.
Q5)in front:735
right:645
left:820

I really enjoyed it metric maths πππ₯

4. #### Yalda N.

What unit of measure is best to measure liquids?
Capacity or volume.
Are centimetres the best way to measure the length of objects?
It depends on what you are finding the length of for example is you are finding the length of a door you should m (metres) but is your finding the length of a makeup brush you would use cm (centimetres).

1)The best measurement to measure liquid is capacity (such as millilitres, litres, pints and ounces).
2) Sometimes the best way to measure the length of objects is centimetre but you may have to measure in metres.
3) The difference between grams and kilograms is that a kilo is 1000 which means 1000 grams equals a kilograms.

Length Challenge
1) If I estimate 2 1/2 to the number of cm would be 250cm or 2.5m
2) The difference between 50 cm and 1 1/2 would be 100 cm or 1m.

How Tall?
I would measure a tall tree with a meter stick to find out how fall it would be.

6. #### Afsana K.

1) The best unit of measurement to measure liquid is millilitres.
2) Yes because if it is small, we can measure it perfectly because a meter would be huge so I would use CM but for big objects, we could still use centimetres but it would take a bit longer to measure.
3)I would use meter sticks and putting them on top of each other to see the height.
4) Grams is 1000 times smaller than kilograms (kilo=1000).
5) 7350 points = front one
8200 points = left one
6450 points = right one

7. #### Safya S.

the best way to measure liquid is capacity
———————————————————————————
liquid challenge:
76
5cm
————————————————————————————————–
yes but you can also use metres and millilitres
————————————————————————————————
i would use a metre stick and measure it until i reach the top if it does not reach someone can get a ladder up the tree they go and measure it.
———————————————————————————————–
kilo means 1000 so it is 1000g smaller
—————————————————————————————
the first melon would get 7 points
the second would get 8 points
the last will get 6 points

8. #### Marwa H.

1) The best measurement to measure liquids are millilitres.
_________________________________________
Liquid challenge:
1a) 75cm is equivalent to 2 1/2 foot.
1b) 3cm
_________________________________________
2) It varies on the size, but if it’s big I would use metres but if it’s small I would use centermetres.
___________________________________________
Tree challenge:
I would grab as many metre sticks as I can and someone might climb the tree to hold them and another reads them out.
__________________________________________
3) The difference between kg and g is that grams is 1000g smaller than 1 kg.

Watermelon challenge:
The first melon would gain 735 points,
The one of the left would gain 820 points
And the one on the right would gain 645 points.
