LC- To convert units of length,


Remember the facts!

So yesterday, we looked at converting and measuring mm and cm.


 We know that 10 mm = 1cm

so to convert from mm to cm, we need to get from 10 to 1. How do we do that?


 We  know that 1cm = 10 mm

so to convert from cm to mm, we need to from 1 to 10. How do we do that?


 I always write my conversion fact at the top of the page to remind me!


Today, we are looking at converting between cm and m.


Have a look at this question.

 So what facts can help us here?


   100 cm = 1m            ( we would need to divide by 100)

       1 m  = 100cm       ( we would need to multiply by 100)


Let's learn some ways to do the conversion.

Now let's do the following example and the guided practice together.
