## What is volume and capacity?

Volume and capacity are properties of three-dimensional objects. Volume is the space that a three-dimensional object occupies or contains; capacity, on the other hand, is the property of a container and describes how much a container can hold.

**How can operations plan their capacity?**

Capacity requirements are dictated by the production plan, master production schedule, or detailed materials plan. These demand signals will indicate how many items must be produced and this can be used to determine how much capacity will be required to produce the items.

### How do you solve word problems for kids?

- Visualize or model the problem.
- Make sure they identify the actual question.
- Remove the numbers.
- Try the CUBES method.
- Show word problems the LOVE.
- Consider teaching word problem key words.

**What is capacity in math?**

In mathematics, the capacity of a set in Euclidean space is a measure of that set’s “size”. Unlike, say, Lebesgue measure, which measures a set’s volume or physical extent, capacity is a mathematical analogue of a set’s ability to hold electrical charge.

#### How do you explain capacity to a child?

Capacity is the total amount of fluid that can be contained in a container. It is the word we use when we are measuring liquids.

**Why are there 3 word maths problems?**

This set of three word problems will challenge children’s understanding of volume and capacity in an engaging way. These word problems present a different challenge than conventional maths questions, helping students practice their logic and reasoning skills as well as their knowledge of volume and capacity.

## How do you teach volume and capacity in the classroom?

Work through these problems as a class for a great exercise to introduce the topic of volume and capacity. Alternatively, split your class into groups and let students work out these word problems themselves. Ask them to keep track of their working out so that they can share it with the class if necessary.

**What is a measurement word problem?**

These measurement word problems focus on volumes and capacities. Students solve the word problems by performing operations (addition / subtraction / multiplication / division) on amounts measured in units of volume.

### What are the different colour problems for year 3?

A range of worded problems I have used with a year 3 class. They are differentiated into red (R), amber (A) and green (G), with red being the simplest (for those feeling very unconfident) and green being for those who are super confident/requiring enrichment. Collated some problems from different sources and added my own.
