This week in numeracy we have been learning about volume. We investigated scales on different measuring jugs, we looked at the different units of measurement, we calculated the volumes shown by markings that didn’t have numbers and we read volumes using the scales.

We are now learning to convert l to ml. We do this by multiplying by 1000. It can be quite tricky when there are decimals involved. To mulitply by 1000 you move everything 3 places to the left, the decimal point stays still, so 0.025l would be 25ml.
