Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free unit conversion worksheet of 44 questions and answers
Unit conversion involves converting between different metric units of measurement, for example between customary units of centimetres (cm) and metres (m), which are metric units of length. This might be done to make the measurement easier to understand or to perform calculations.
We use metric measurement units for length, mass and capacity. In order to convert between metric measurements, we need to know the conversion rates for different units . For example, metric conversions for converting units of length are 1km=1000m, 1m=100cm and 1cm=10mm.
The metric system uses different prefixes to mean different things. Examples of these prefixes are milli, centi and kilo. Wherever kilo is used, for example, it means 1000 of the unit. 1kg=1000g and 1km=1000m.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional conversion worksheets and other ratio and proportion worksheets, for example a ratio worksheet or a simplifying and equivalent ratios worksheet.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
