* A method to convert from one unit of measure to another, using conversion factors. * Example Problem: * How many centimeters are in 4.6 kilometers? Add anything in BLUE writing on the back of the foldable flap

3
* Write down what you know, with units! * What I know: * 4.6km * What I am looking for: * cm FRONT of Flap: Write down what you know, with units. STEP 1 BACK of Flap: What I know: 4.6 km What I am looking for: cm

4
* Set up a T-chart * 4.6km

5
* Fill in the units first, making sure that the given units cancel out. * 4.6kmm km

6
* Add your key conversion factor into your T- chart. * Multiply across the top, divide by the bottom **If necessary, continue steps 3 and 4 until you reach your desired answer. 4.6km1000 m 1 km But I’m looking for centimeters! (4.6*1000*100) (1*1) = 460,000cm 100 cm 1 m =

7
* 1cm = 10mm * 1m = 100cm * 1m = 1000mm * 1 km = 1000m *The base units (meters) can be changed to other units (grams, liters, etc).

8
1. Convert 13 cm to m. 2. Convert 1.7m to mm. 3. Convert 16 cm to mm. 4. Convert 1987 km to m. 5. Convert 98 m to cm 6. Convert mm to m. 7. Convert 189 mm to cm.
