1Question of the dayWhat is the scale factor of yards to inches?
2Learning goalStudents will be able to compare, contrast, and convert units of measure between different measurement systems (US customary or metric SI), dimensions, and derived units to solve problems.
3Level 2Students will:Identify the appropriate unit of measure for the given objectIdentify units (length, mass or capacity/volume)Identify what is Customary and MetricDefine key terms.
4Level 3Students will:Use dimensional analysis to solve problems within same measurement system (Metric or Customary)Convert between Metric and Customary
5Level 4Use dimensional analysis between systems to solve real-world problemsCreate a word problem involving dimensional analysis between two systems
6Key terms Metric system US customary system Volume Mass Unit of measureConversion factor
7Measurements conversion US customary and Metric systems
10You try The weight of a car? Length of a piece of paper? How much water in a small pool?
11Finding conversion factor This is the difference between two units of measure.Example from inches to feet it would be 12 1
12You tryConversion factorCups to pintsOunces to pounds
13Converting customary units 1. find the conversion factor between the two you are converting2. Create a proportion between the conversion factor and given information3. Cross, cross, divide (sing the song if needed)
14exampleConvert 18 cups to pints.𝑐𝑢𝑝𝑠 𝑝𝑖𝑛𝑡𝑠 = 18 𝑋
15You tryConvert 30 inches to feetConvert 1500 lbs. to tons
16Sometimes you will have to do more than one conversion. Example it you are converting from inches to miles.Just do one conversion at a time until you reach the correct ending unit
17Metric unit of measures GramsMeasurement of mass or weightLiterMeasurement of volume or capacityMeterMeasurement of length
