- To order multistep calculations.
- To interpret line graphs.
- To convert between different units of metric measure (Year 5)
- To interpret line graphs and to convert between miles and kilometres (Year 6)
-To change freely between related standard units [for example length, capacity and mass] (KS3)
This lesson consists of:
A Starter consisting of a series of progressively harder, multi-step calculations and revision of properties of numbers. A connect activity challenging children to hypothesise what data a series of line graphs might represent.
An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart, to teach use line graphs to convert between different units of measure and how to draw their own line graphs.
A 4-way differentiated series of tasks requiring children to convert between the various metric units of measure using, and plotting their own, line graphs. A challenge activity where children convert between miles and kilometres and metres. Answer sheet provided to support marking.
A final AFL / Next Steps task, asking children to apply their knowledge to a conversion table, converting between litres and gallons.
