is consolidated by understanding
relationships between standard units of measurement, such as 1 metre equals 100
1 centimetre equals 10 millimetres, hence 1 metre equals 1000 millimetres. ln addition, practice in conversion between the standard units of measurement will help them to acquire high mathematical competencies with
problemrespect to measurement. These competencies are then applied in various solving situations.
Estimatinq and measurinq lenqth in non-standard units
Children's Learning Outcome:
To estimate and measure lengths with non-standard units.
Materials: Pens, Coins.
1. Teacher introduces a non-standard
unit (e.9. pens or coins)
Z. pupils estimate the length of their table with the non-standard unit in small
Pupils check their estimates by measuring the length of the table with the nonstandard unit.
4. Discuss the idea of and the use of non-standard units for measuring lengths.
5. Discuss problems with
the use of non-standard units and the need of standard
