What’s in the fridge?

Monday, 15 June 2009 | 0 Comments

What else could you do with capacity? As I was getting a glass of juice to have with my breakfast, I was thinking that I could use this image as a quick question at the start of a lesson.

That is, find the total capacity on the bottom shelf of the door of my fridge.

This could be extended as a home exercise with students getting laptops with built-in cameras – take a photo of your fridge shelf and find the capacity of the containers on it.
