Y10 Foundation: Topic 24: Compound measures

Objectives:

    • Use the relationship between distance, speed and time to solve problems
    • Convert between metric units of speed, eg km/h to m/s
    • Know that density is found by mass ÷ volume
    • Use the relationship between density, mass and volume to solve problems
    • Convert between metric units of density, eg kg/m to g/cm

Prior Knowledge:

    • Knowledge of metric units, eg 1 m = 100 cm, etc
    • Know that 1 hour = 60 mins, 1 min = 60 seconds
    • Experience of multiply by powers of 10, eg 100 × 100 = 10 000

Key Vocabulary:

  • Copy and paste here.

Differentiation & Extension:

    • Perform calculations on a calculator by using standard form
    • Convert imperial units to metric units, eg mph into km/h

Using & Applying ideas:

  • Collaborate here.

NOTES

    • Use a distance, speed and time triangle to help students see the relationship between the variables
