Maths!

Hello and welcome back to the blog where today I am going to be sharing with you my weight and capacity task. There were four problems to solve and some of them were really hard. I am sharing this with you because I haven't shared maths in a while. Lets get to my work.


Here is my tasks
  1. Think what balance scales look like (image a see-saw)
Draw five diagrams of different looking balance scales and put on each side what might be being weighed

A school bus has a 2600 kg carrying capacity,  How many people would it be permitted to carry?   (think about the difference of child and adult) 40


  1. I can see a selection of containers with a capacity bigger than 1 L but smaller than 2 L.  What might the containers be?
1.5, 1.9, 1 ¾, 1.1, 1 ¼ , 1 9/10
  1. Make three different packages that have a mass of 1 kg.  Compare the size of your packages and discuss why they can be so different but have the same mass.
Rice       play-dough
¼ cup=54g                       ¼ cup= 76g                                      
⅓ cup=75g                       1/3  cup= 108
½ cup=108          ½ cup= 132
1 cup =216                      1 cup=264  311              
4 cup=432                       2 cup=528
4 ¼ cups 20g = 488            1 3/4 cup=512

pack 1 4 ¼ cups and 20 pic rice=488g rice
1 ¾ cup play-dough= 512g play-dough
488+512=1000g= 1kg
Biggest


1 Banana=184g 1 Lime=63 1 grape= 7
2 Banana=368 2 Lime=126 2 grape= 14
3 banana=572 3 Lime=252
2 ½ banana=460 4 Lime= 504 9/10 gape= 6
½ banana=92   


Pack 2
2 1/2 banana, 4 Lime, 9/10 banana
Smallest  


1 counter=14 g 1 domino= 7g
2 counters=28 g 2 domino's= 14 g
10 counters=140 g 10 domino's=70g
20 counters=280 g 20 domino's= 140 g
40 counters=560 g 40 domino's= 280 g
33/40 50 domino's= 350
51/63 60 domino's= 420 g
62 domino's= 234


pack 3
40 counters=560 g
62 9/10 of domino's= 240


Middle
