Classroom Considerations

  • If you aren't logged in to Learnzillion, you will be prompted to create a free account to access all materials for this resource
Pros

  • Word problems are kid-centric; learners will be able to relate to the situations being explored
  • The video demonstrates how to write a complete answer, including both the answer and the thought process used to get there
Cons

  • The review of the difference between liters and milliliters is brief and does not break down the definition of milliliter to assist learners in understanding how it relates to a full liter
  • The review portion of understanding a remainder is well done; however, the review poses a problem unrelated to volume to explain remainder, so does not feel appropriate for this particular lesson
