### ACTIVITY: To solve problems that include converting between S.I. units [LO 4.5]

1. This activity should be like child's play! Let us see how well you can remember the work. Take a good look at the following and convert as required:

1.1 3 ℓ = ________________________ mℓ

1.2 3 ℓ = ________________________ kℓ

1.3 0,03 ℓ = ______________________ mℓ

1.4 0,147 kℓ = _____________________ ℓ

1.5 1,2 kℓ = _______________________ ℓ

1.6 29,804 ℓ = _____________________ mℓ

1.7 1,507 kℓ = _____________________ ℓ

1.8 300 ℓ = ________________________ mℓ

1.9 19 000 mℓ = ____________________ ℓ

1.10 1 cup = ________________________ mℓ

## Assessment

Learning Outcome 4: The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.

Assessment Standard 4.5: We know this when the solves problems involving selecting, calculating with and converting between appropriate S.I. units listed above, integrating with appropriate Technology and Natural Sciences contexts.
