Renaming Customary Units of Measure SWBAT rename customary units of length, capacity, and weight; to compute with units of measure

Renaming units of measure  1 foot = _______ inches  1 yard = _______ feet  1 mile = ___________ feet, or __________ yards 12 3 5,280 1,760

Try this in your groups  I want to wrap 8 inches or ribbon around a certificate for each of my 7th graders (there are 9). Spools of ribbon come in 3 foot packs. How many do I need to buy? 8 x 98 x 9 72 inches72 inches How would I covert that into feet?How would I covert that into feet? 72 inches ÷ 12 inches72 inches ÷ 12 inches 6 feet6 feet 3 rolls3 rolls

To Rename Units  You can rename units by multiplying or dividing To rename larger units as smaller units MultiplyTo rename larger units as smaller units Multiply To rename smaller units as larger units DivideTo rename smaller units as larger units Divide

Examples  ¾ mile = ________ feet  90 in = _______yards  60 oz = _______lbs  30 fl oz. = ____ cups  6 ½ gal = ___ qt  2 ½ lb = ___ oz  30 in. = ____ ft  6 ½ c = ____ fl oz

Try These  ¾ Ton = _______ lb ¾ x 2000¾ x 2000 1500 lbs1500 lbs  4 ½ gal = ____ pt 4 ½ x 4 x 24 ½ x 4 x 2 36 pts36 pts  12,600 lb = ________ T 12,600 ÷ 200012,600 ÷ 2000 6.3 T6.3 T
