# Max Maths, Year 3, Work Book, Converting between grams and kilograms (1)

In the Max Maths Year 3 Workbook, students are introduced to the concept of converting between grams and kilograms through a series of practice exercises. Practice 6 focuses on this conversion, starting with calculating the total mass in grams. For example, students are asked to add together weights given in kilograms and grams, such as 1 kg + 1 kg and 100 g + 100 g + 100 g + 50 g, and then convert the total into grams. The exercises are designed to reinforce their understanding of the relationship between the two units, where 1 kg equals 1000 g, and to help them become proficient in combining different masses to find a total weight in grams.

The workbook also guides students through exercises where they must find the total mass in both kilograms and grams. For instance, they might be given weights like 1 kg + 1 kg and 1000 g and are required to express the sum in terms of kilograms and the remaining grams. Additional exercises involve real-world objects, such as finding the mass of a toolbox, a tortoise, a school bag, and a bicycle in both kilograms and grams, as well as converting from a mixed measure to just grams. These tasks are structured to help students understand how to break down and convert weights, thereby enhancing their practical skills in measurement and conversion.
