Addressing misconceptions about mass and volume/capacity

Summary

There appears to be much confusion amongst both teachers and students about the concepts of mass and volume/capacity and how they can be measured. A common belief, for example, is that grams/kilograms are always the units for solids, and litres/millilitres are always the units for liquids. Another common misconception is that knowing a cubic centimetre equates to a millilitre, people think that one millilitre equates to one gram. In this workshop you will be introduced to a couple of simple hands-on tasks and discuss how they might be used to reveal your students’ thinking and reasoning about mass and volume/capacity.
