## Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 18.6 Answer Key Metric Units for Liquid Volume

**Unlock the Problem**

Liquid volume is the amount of liquid in a container. The liter (L) is the basic metric unit for measuring liquid volume. A milliliter (mL) is the metric unit to measure liquid in very small containers.

**Activity**

Materials; 1-L beaker; a bottle cap; 1-mL dropper; 2 containers; water; tape

STEP 1:

Fill a 1-liter beaker with water to the 1-liter mark.

STEP 2:

Pour 1 liter of water to fill a container. Mark the level of the water with a piece of tape. Draw the container below and name the container. Write if the container holds less than a liter, a liter, or more than a liter.

STEP 3:

Repeat Steps 1 and 2 with a different-sized container.

Container 1

Container 2

STEP 4:

Use the 1-mL dropper filled with water to fill the bottle cap. How many times did you fill the dropper?

Explain if the bottle cap is less than a milliliter, a milliliter, or more than a milliliter? ____________

Name a container that will hold a liter of water.

Will the container hold 50 bottle caps of water? Justify.

Answer:

Container 1 is a cooking pot; more than a liter.

Container 2 is a vase of less than a liter.

A water bottle will hold a liter of water.

We can fill the dropper 20 times with 1-mL dropper filled with water to fill the bottle cap.

Explanation:

Yes. The container holds at least a liter of water, a bottle cap holds a few milliliters of water which is a very small part of a liter. So, the container will hold 50 bottle caps of water.

**Mathematical Processes**

What can you say about the amount of liquid volume in each container?

Answer:

Suppose you drank a glass of orange juice. Did you drink about 4 mL or 300 mL of orange juice? Explain.

Answer:

The 4 ml would only be a few droppers full of juice and a glass would contain much more liquid, so 300 mL is a better to estimate.

**Problem Solving**

**Use the containers for 10-13. Container A is full when 1 liter of water is poured into it.**

Question 10.

**Write Math** What if you poured 1 liter of water into Container B? Describe the way the water fills the container. Explain how you know.

Answer:

It will be almost full.

Explanation:

Container A holds 1 liter. Since Container B is shorter and wider, it will most likely hold the same amount of water.

Question 11.

**H.O.T. Reasoning** Bryson filled 2 containers full with water. One container held 2 liters and the other container held 250 milliliters. Which two containers did he fill?

Answer:

Container C and Container E.

Explanation:

Container C would hold 2 liters of water. Container E would hold 250 milliliters of water. So we compared C and E to A.

Question 12.

**H.O.T. Evaluate** Name two containers that will be filled with about the same number of liters of water. Explain.

Answer:

Containers A and B.

Explanation:

Container A is taller than Container B, but not as wide.

Question 13.

**H.O.T.** What’s the Error? Samuel says that you can pour more liters of water into Container B than into Container D. Is he correct? Explain.

Answer:

No

Explanation:

Container B is smaller than container D. Therefore Container D is much taller, it can hold more liters of water when filled.
