L.O. - To understand when a formula can calculate the length, area or volume, and convert between units for these three different dimensions (Level 7/8 and Grade 5/6).
The cube is 1 metre in very dimension.
(a) Calculate the area of the front face and the volume of the cube.
(b) Recalculate the area and volume if we convert the length to cm.
(c) Recalculate the area and volume if we convert the length to mm.

A triangle has an area of 6250 mm .

Evan says "this means it has an area of 625 cm ."

Explain why Evan is wrong and give the correct area in cm .
Evan has made the mistake that because there are 10 mm in a cm he can just divide by 10, which is converting the lengths not the areas. The correct answer is 62.5 cm .

(Length + Length) x Length = Length x Length = Area.

Length + Length = Length

Length x Length = Length x Length x Length = Area.
