Measurement tools and skills have a variety of uses in everyday life. The ability to use measuring tools, rulers, thermometers, scales, and to estimate with these tools are necessary skills that enable us to understand the world around us.

We will be exploring the impact that packaging has on our environment to develop our understanding of length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), temperature, angle, time, graphing and nets.

In addition we will all sign up to Banqer to develop our financial literacy understanding for one session each week. There will also be a regular focus on times tables. Students will be supplied a 1B4 maths book and will be expected to use this to capture aspects of their learning.

This course is designed for students who might reasonably expect to be working at a year 8 or 9 level.

Context: Environmental Studies

Essential vocabulary: scales, metric, length, area, volume and capacity, weight, mass, temperature, angle, and time.
