Assessment resource Filling glasses: match: assessment

TLF ID L9779

Test your understanding of the relationship between the shape of a glass and the level of liquid in the glass as it fills. Show your understanding of this relationship by matching glass shapes to line graphs that represent the filling rates. For example, match a parallel-sided tall glass to a straight line graph. View and print a report of your results. This assessment object is one in a series of two objects.
