# Max Maths, Year 3, Work Book, Converting between centimetres and metres, and between metres and kilometres (2)

In the Max Maths workbook for Year 3, students are encouraged to practice their skills in converting between centimetres and metres, as well as adding and subtracting lengths. The exercises are designed to enhance their understanding of measurement and the relationship between different units of length. One task involves calculating the height of a fence and a sign from the road, given their measurements partially covered by grass. Students are required to add the height of the gutter to the measurements provided to find the total height from the road. They are also asked to determine how much higher the sign is than the fence by subtracting the fence's height from the sign's height.

Another set of tasks focuses on comparing the lengths of animals. Students must find the total length of a donkey and a rhinoceros by adding their individual lengths. They are then challenged to find out how much longer the rhinoceros is compared to the donkey by subtracting the length of the donkey from that of the rhinoceros. Further exercises involve doubling the lengths to find the combined length of two donkeys or two rhinoceroses, again reinforcing the concept of addition with measurements. These activities help students to become fluent in working with measurements and understanding the practical applications of addition and subtraction in real-world contexts.
