Subject: Re: Re: teaching capacity, volume
To my knowledge, capacity and volume are the same thing. By the way, Kraft mayonaise jars come in cup, pint and quart sizes. That is what I use for those measures. Many kids are not familiar with these sizes now a days. Usually, we think of volume in terms of a container with length, width and depth or other shapes such as cylinders and spheres. Maybe some teachers think of capacity in terms of irregular containers such as those used for liquid. Coke bottles for instance.
