These photocopy masters in the measurement stand of mathematics have been devised to: provide teachers with activities to reinforce teaching objectives related to required aspects of numeracy strategy documents; give teachers alternative approaches so students can practice the necessary
skills; be time saving (teachers don’t have to prepare worksheets); provide enrichment activities; provide starting points for teachers; be easy to use.

As such the book covers concepts directed towards meeting standards and curriculum references for:

* Making sense of number problems; Problems involving measures (length; mass; volume; time; capacity; area)

* Shape and space: Properties of 2D shapes; Properties of 3D shapes.

Each page of activities contains a challenge section to extend the students’ learning.

For children to learn effectively they need to be taught using a problem solving approach involving only one new concept being introduced at a time, with plenty of time to practice new skills. Opportunities should be given for children to work together in groups or pairs and to discover why they need to learn mathematics and how it relates to everyday life.
