Lesson 14 Measurements of storage

Curriculum > KS4 > Unit > Lesson

Learners will already be familiar with the terms ‘bit’, ‘nibble’, and ‘byte’. They will now learn about other types of storage capacity, and they will practise converting between units of measurement. They will also learn about the difference between storage capacities such as ‘megabyte’ and ‘mebibyte’ to help support them when performing calculations.

Learning objectives

  • Define the terms ‘bit’, ‘nibble’, ‘kilobyte’, ‘megabyte’, ‘gigabyte’, ‘terabyte’, and ‘petabyte’
  • Compare ‘kibibyte’, ‘mebibyte’, ‘gibibyte’, and ‘tebibyte’ to ‘megabyte’, ‘gigabyte’, and ‘terabyte’’
  • Convert between units of measurement
