Measuring Capacity, Weight, and Temperature Section 7.2

Objectives Convert and perform operations on units of capacity Convert and perform operations on units of weight Convert units of temperature and time

Objective 1: Convert and perform operations on units of capacity

Objective 1 Units of capacity measure liquid quantities English units Metric units Conversion – use same technique To convert units of capacity –Multiply by unit fraction with desired units in numerator and original units in denominator –Simplify

Objective 1 Performing operations on units of capacity is done the same as for units of length To multiply or divide a measurement by a number –Multiply or divide numbers and write unit of measure To add or subtract measurements –If units of measure are unlike, convert to like measures –Add or subtract numbers and write unit of measure

Objective 2: Convert and perform operations on units of weight

Objective 2 Units of weight measure heaviness English units Metric units Conversion – use same technique To convert units of capacity –Multiply by unit fraction with desired units in numerator and original units in denominator –Simplify

Objective 2 Performing operations on units of capacity is done the same as for units of length To multiply or divide a measurement by a number –Multiply or divide numbers and write unit of measure To add or subtract measurements –If units of measure are unlike, convert to like measures –Add or subtract numbers and write unit of measure

Objective 3: Convert units of temperature and time

Objective 3 Units is degrees English system – Fahrenheit Metric system – Celsius Conversion is different –Fahrenheit vs. Celsius – temperatures of freezing and boiling water –Unlike other measurements, temperature has different starting points

Objective 3 To convert from F to C or To convert from C to F or

Objective 3 Converting units of time – use same technique –Multiply by unit fraction with desired units in numerator and original units in denominator –Simplify
