How can you compare lengths in the customary system?

 Complete activity 1 (parts A and B).  You have 10 minutes!

 Were your measurements close to the historical measures?  Lets look at the main customary units in order from smallest to largest. ◦ Inches, Feet, Yards, Miles ◦ Think about what is equivalent to each unit in the real world

 1 ft12inches 1 yard 3feet 12 in 1 ft 3 feet 1 yard  1760 yd 1 mile5280 feet1 mile 1 mile 1760yd 1 mile 5280 ft

 3 feet = _______ inches  4 miles = _______ feet  36 yards = _______ feet  24 inches = _______ feet  15840 feet = _______ miles

 Small to larger unit = divide  Larger to smaller unit = multiply

 42 inches = __________ feet  12 yards = __________ feet  48 feet = ____________ yards  3 yards = ________ inches

 How can you compare lengths in the customary system?

How can you compare the units of capacity and weight in the customary system?

 Fluid oz, cups, pints, quarts, gallons  1 cup = _______ fluid oz  1pint = _______ cups  1 quart = _______ pints and _______ cups  1 gallon = _______ quarts ________ pints

 Use equivalent ratios like we did yesterday.  16 pints ________ cups  24 fluid oz = _______ cups  4 gallons = ________ quarts  8 pints = _______ quarts

 Convert the following measures ◦ 20 pints = _______ quarts ◦ 6 cups = ________ fluid ounces ◦ 48 fluid ounces = _________ cups ◦ 12 gallons = ________ quarts ◦ 11 quarts = ________ pints

 Ounces, Pounds, and Tons  1 ounce is equal to the following: 10 pennies, a cd, a pen, a screw, a small battery, a standard letter envelope, a slice of cheese  1 pound is equal to the following: package of butter (with four sticks), a football, a box of brown sugar, three medium-sized bananas, a shoe  1 ton is equal to the following: a small car, certain types of whales, two horses

 16 ounces – 1 pound  2000 pounds - 1 ton  Let’s practice converting ◦ 32 ounces = ________ pounds ◦ 25 pounds = _______ ounces ◦ 5000 pounds = _______ tons ◦ 4 tons = ________ pounds

 How can you compare units of weight and capacity in the customary system?  Start on your homework or decorate your brochure/foldable!
