Represent Liquid Volume Measurement Quantities Using Diagrams

This Represent Liquid Volume Measurement Quantities Using Diagrams video also includes:

In the second of five videos, an instructor walks through how to show liquid volume measurements by creating diagrams with a scale that fits the problem. A review of diagrams kicks off the lesson. The kids will be familiar with several, such as tape, bar, number lines, and tables. Then, the common mistake of not breaking the measurement scale into equal fractions is discussed in the midst of solving a real-world question. The same question is solved a second way using a different diagram and discussing multiple strategies that could be used to arrive at the answer.
