For each correct answer, you will be awarded points. Your score is displayed on the left side of the Results Bar that appears below the graduated cylinder.
Points are awarded based on the following table.
Each time you correctly guess 5 measurements, you will advance to the next level. Your current level is indicated in the Results Bar below the graduated cylinder.
