1  What is the scale factor of yards to inches?

2  Students 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.

3  Students will:  Identify the appropriate unit of measure for the given object  Identify units (length, mass or capacity/volume)  Identify what is Customary and Metric  Define key terms.

4  Students will:  Use dimensional analysis to solve problems within same measurement system (Metric or Customary)  Convert between Metric and Customary

5  Use dimensional analysis between systems to solve real-world problems  Create a word problem involving dimensional analysis between two systems

6  Metric system  US customary system  Volume  Mass  Unit of measure  Conversion factor

7 US customary and Metric systems

10  The weight of a car?  Length of a piece of paper?  How much water in a small pool?

12  Conversion factor  Cups to pints  Ounces to pounds

13  1. find the conversion factor between the two you are converting  2. Create a proportion between the conversion factor and given information  3. Cross, cross, divide (sing the song if needed)

14

15  Convert 30 inches to feet  Convert 1500 lbs. to tons

16  Sometimes 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

20  The weight of a car?  Length of a piece of paper?  How much water in a small pool?

21  Because the metric system is based on units of ten, we do not need scale factors.  We only need to know how many times we will be diving or multiplying by ten

22  Example if we are converting between Kilo- and Deca-, that is two steps.  two steps of 10 equal 100, so we multiply 100

23  Covert 4 kilometers to meters  That is 3 jumps  Each jump is 10, so three would be x 10 x 10 = x 1000= 4000

24  Convert 20 milligrams to decigrams  Convert 34 hectograms to grams

25  Describe in words how you would convert inches to miles
