Capacity I can convert US customary measurement of capacity and metric measurements of capacity. EQ: How can you apply your understanding of measurement units to express larger units in terms of smaller units within one system?

Vocabulary Capacity -the measurement of how much liquid a container can hold Metric -pertaining to the metric system (a decimal system of weights and measures) US Customary Teaspoon Tablespoon Cup Fluid Ounce Pint Gallon Quart Metric Liters Milliliters

Back to our EQ How can you apply your understanding of measurement units to express larger units in terms of smaller units within one system? How did we show our time conversions ? Heads down bottoms up! WE USED A TABLE!

Very Important Information! US Customary 1 teaspoon (tsp) = 1/3 tablespoon (tbsp) 1 tbs = 1 cup 8 fluid ounces (fl oz) = 1 cup (c) 2 c = 1 pint (p) 2 p = 1 quart (q) 4 q = 1 gallon (g) Metric 1 liter (L) = 1000 (mL)

BRAINBREAK! Everybody Up!

Task 1: I do! How many cups are in four gallons?

Task 2: We do! How many fluid ounces (fl oz) are in 2 quarts (q)? Hmmm….I’m thinking we need to know how many fluid ounces are in a cup and then go from there!

Task 3: You do! How many quarts are in nine gallons? 36 q = 9 G

Metric…We do! How many mL are in 12 L

enVision page 366 Based on what you know about customary units of capacity what would be the best choice? 3 gallons 30 gallons 2 cups 2 quarts 1 pint 1 quart
