PROBLEM: How does metric volume compare with the English volume of measurement?
PREDICTION:
PROCEDURE:
Exercise 1: Using the measuring devices on your lab table, determine the measurements for the following: (Use water to help you develop a way to find the correct number.)
_______ ML  1 CUP 
_______ ML  2 CUPS 
_______ ML  1/4 CUP 
_______ ML  1/2 CUP 
_______ ML  1 TABLESPOON 
_______ ML  2 1/2 CUPS 
_______ ML  1 1/4 CUPS 
EXERCISE 2:
You have 4 unlabeled containers. Try and figure out how many ml can fit into each container. Before you measure the volume, predict how much liquid each container can hold.
PREDICTION  MEASURED AMOUNT  
BOTTLE 1  
BOTTLE 2  
BOTTLE 3  
BOTTLE 4 
CONCLUSION:
How many ml make 1 cup?
Since you figured out how many ml make 1 cup, how could you determine how many ml would fit into 3 1/2 cups?
