Water, milk, flour, sugar, oil and many more consumables in the kitchen can be measured using:
- fluid ounces
Some are metric units and others are US standard measurements. The conversion of cooking measurements is a great way for your children to learn to measure. However going through the process of cooking is a fun hands-0n way to not only learn maths but all gain a whole range of skills and cover a wide range of curriculum topics such as:
- Emotional and social development
- Language skills
- Motor skills and physical development
- Social studies
Scientists never just grab handfuls of chemicals and toss them together. Accurate, precise measurement is a fundamental component of good science. To standardise measurements across all scientific disciplines scientists developed the International System of Units, known as SI Units. Even with a standardised system, there is room for uncertainty in the laboratory. Minimising this uncertainty ensures proper understanding of a process or experiment.
Scientific measurements use units to quantify and describe the magnitude of something.
There are many different units for the measure of length: inches, feet, centimetres, etc.
Using common units, scientists from different countries and cultures can easily interpret each others’ results.
The current list of SI units are:
- Metres (m) for length
- Litres (L) for volume
- Kilograms (kg) for mass
- Seconds (s) for time
- Kelvin (K) for temperature
- Ampere (A) for electrical current
- Mole (mol) for amount of substance, and
- Candela (cd) for luminous intensity.
