Estimating Measures

In Maths this week, we have been looking at capacity and weight. We have been practicing our ‘estimating’ skills. Our first challenge was to estimate how many cups of water would fill the 2 litre bottle. We decided that the closest ‘estimation’ should win a prize. Well done to Chelsea who guessed exactly 11 cups!

Mary and Eddie were measuring the weight of objects to the nearest 100g. They made estimations first and then checked using the scales. They put the objects in order of weight and then worked out the difference between the heaviest and lightest objects.

Good estimating ‘HG Mathematicians’!
