In this booklet, the term “measures” refers mainly to length, weight, capacity and temperature. Time and Money are covered in a separate booklet. This booklet is aimed at tutors working with learners from about Entry Level 1 to Level 2. It is not a text book, or a list of recipes to teach particular aspects of measure. Instead, it suggests some approaches that we have found effective in enabling learners to use measures effectively and to relate them to other mathematical concepts.
