Compound Measures

Four lessons with cross-curricular links to science. Taught using the triangle cover-up method.

  • Speed, distance and time recaps calculating with time and covers using time with decimals. Main task is differentiated. Bloom's Taxonomy questions and answers included.

  • Mass, density and volume includes links to volume calculations, opportunities for discussion and bingo. 

  • Pressure, force and area has clear explanations relating to real-life objects. Plenty of true/false questions at the end to assess students' understanding. Differentiated main task.

  • Problem-solving with compound measures includes converting between compound units as well as mixing densities and total average speeds. Clear examples with the option to skip the animations if you prefer to write on the IWB instead.
