What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

Australia – Australian Curriculum

• Measurement and Geometry
• Using units of measurement

• ACMMG108 – Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass

• ACMMG109 – Calculate the perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units

New Zealand – National Standards

• 7.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 7.GM.3 – Use side or edge lengths to find the perimeters and areas of rectangles and parallelograms and the volumes of cuboids, given whole-number dimensions

United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• Year 5 programme of study
• KS2.Y5.M – Measurement

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y5.M.7 – Use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [for example, length, mass, volume, money] using decimal notation, including scaling

United States – Common Core State Standards

• 3.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 3.MD.7 – Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.

• 3.MD.7.b – Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
