This video looks at how to order objects using capacity.

We want to order these three cups from largest capacity to smallest capacity.

Cup $1$1 | Cup $2$2 | Cup $3$3 |
---|---|---|

Capacity $=$= $337$337 mL | Capacity $=$= $630$630 mL | Capacity $=$= $136$136 mL |

Which of these cups has the largest capacity?

Cup $1$1

ACup $2$2

BCup $3$3

CCup $1$1

ACup $2$2

BCup $3$3

CWhich of these cups has the second largest capacity?

Cup $3$3

ACup $1$1

BCup $2$2

CCup $3$3

ACup $1$1

BCup $2$2

CWhich of these cups has the smallest capacity?

Cup $3$3

ACup $1$1

BCup $2$2

CCup $3$3

Remember!

The capacity of an object is how much it can hold.

To put objects into order you must compare them first.

Use scaled instruments to measure and compare lengths, masses, capacities and temperatures
