Testimonials

What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • 3 – Grade 3
    • 3.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 3.MD.2 – Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). (Excludes multiplicative comparison problems (problems involving notions of “times as much”; see Glossary, Table 2 http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards/mathematics/glossary/glossary/ ). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem. (Excludes compound units such as cm3 and finding the geometric volume of a container.)
