Length conversion pyramid

(0)
A set of cards students need to arrange into a pyramid by converting between different units of length. Units used are mm, cm, m, km, in, yards and miles. This gives students practice at converting between all units and helps them to visualize these length in comparison to each other. This also encourages students to think about different approaches to completing a task- some may convert all lengths to one unit of length, others will use more intuition about which order they go in and only need to convert some.

A set of cards students need to arrange into a pyramid by converting between different units of length. These conversions are more challenging for a more able class. Units used are mm, cm, m, km, in, yards and miles. This gives students practice at converting between all units and helps them to visualize these length in comparison to each other. This also encourages students to think about different approaches to completing a task- some may convert all lengths to one unit of length, others will use more intuition about which order they go in and only need to convert some. Can be done with a calculator to make it accessible to lower abilities.
