Outcomes & Indicators

Early Stage One

MES1.3: Compares the capacities of containers and the volumes of objects or substances using direct comparison.
Indicators:
  • Identify and describe the attributes of volume and capacity.
  • Compare the capacities of two containers by using direct comparison.
  • Compare the volumes of two objects by direct observation.
  • Record comparisons informally.
Stage One
MS1.3: Estimates, measures, compares and records volumes and capacities using informal units.
Indicators:
  • Use appropriate informal units to estimate and measure volume and capacity.
  • Compare and order the capacities of two or more containers and the volumes of two or more models or objects.
  • Record measurements by referring to the number and type of informal units used.
Stage Two
MS2.3: Estimates, measures, compares and records volumes and capacities using litres, millilitres and cubic centimetres.
Indicators:
  • Recognise the need for a formal unit to measure volume and capacity.
  • Estimate, measure, compare and record volumes and capacities using litres and millilitres.
  • Measure the volume of models in cubic centimetres.
  • Convert between litres and millilitres.
Stage Three
MS3.3: Selects and uses the appropriate unit to estimate and measure volume and capacity, including the volume of rectangular prisms.
Indicators:
  • Select the appropriate unit to measure volume and capacity.
  • Recognise the need for cubic metres.
  • Estimate and measure the volume of rectangular prisms.
  • Determine the relationship between cubic centimetres and millilitres.
  • Record volume and capacity using decimal notation to three decimal places.
