Meters squared: -means that there are 2 dimensions (a length and width) measured in meters -it represents the number of flat squares (1m by 1m) that would be needed to cover a flat area... Think how many flooring tile that would be needed to cover the kitchen floor

meters cubed: -means that there are 3 dimensions (a length, width, and height) measured in meters

-it represents the number of cubes (1m by 1m by 1m) that would be needed to fill a container... Think packing peanuts (except all square) that would be needed to fill a box
