📏Looking for Measurement Conversion Worksheets?

If your students are learning how to convert between units properly, error analysis can be a helpful way to ensure your students know how to change one unit to the next correctly. Regardless of whether students are converting between metres, centimetres, or kilometres, they need to remember quite a few length measurements

Teach Starter has created an error analysis worksheet to help your students strengthen their measurement conversion skills with length. With this maths worksheet, students will analyse length conversions and identify errors. Errors may include:

• Multiplying incorrectly
• Dividing by the wrong number
• Using the wrong conversion value

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

If students are looking for a bit of a challenge, have them write their own word problems on the back of the worksheet where conversion is required.

Allow students who need additional support access to a multiplication chart. Additionally, invite students to reference posters or anchor charts that help guide them through the process of proportionate solving.

Because this resource includes an answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheet for students to complete.

Additionally, project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks.
