LENGTH: MEASUREMENT CONVERSIONS MISS OBERLANDER HERES A LITTLE RAP TO HELP! When you are converting on the fly, Bigger to smaller, you multiply!

When youre converting, dont hide, Smaller to bigger, just divide! HOW TO CONVERT Given: 48 inches= __________ feet Step 1: Write what conversion you KNOW between inches and feet in the same order as the problem.

Know: ______ inches = 1 foot Step 2: Think AM I going bigger to smaller or smaller to bigger? Inches feet (small) TO (big) If you are going bigger to smaller, you will

multiply! x If you are going smaller to bigger, you will divide! Step 3: Set up a math problem using what you know with what you were given. Know: 12 inches = 1 foot Given: 48 inches

48 12 = Step 4: Ask yourself, Does my answer make sense? There are 48 inches in 4 feet. HOW TO CONVERT Given: 5 miles = __________ feet Step 1: Write what conversion you KNOW

between inches and feet in the same order as the problem. Know: 1 mile = ________ feet Step 2: Think AM I going bigger to smaller or smaller to bigger? miles feet (big) TO (small)

If you are going bigger to smaller, you will multiply! x If you are going smaller to bigger, you will divide! Step 3: Set up a math problem using what you know with what you were given. Know: 1 mile = 5,280 feet

Given: 5 miles 5,280 x 5 = Step 4: Ask yourself, Does my answer make sense? There are 26,400 feet in 5 miles. HOW TO CONVERT

Given: 52 yards = __________ feet Step 1: Write what conversion you KNOW between inches and feet in the same order as the problem. Know: 1 yd = ________ feet Step 2: Think AM I going bigger to smaller or smaller to bigger?

Yards feet (big) TO (small) If you are going bigger to smaller, you will multiply! x If you are going smaller to bigger, you will divide! Step 3: Set up a math problem using what you know with what you were

given. Know: 1 yard = 3 feet Given: 52 yards 52 x 3 = Step 4: Ask yourself, Does my answer make sense? There are 156 feet in 52 yards.

WHAT ABOUT CONVERSIONS WITH METRIC? The steps remain the same! Just remember the conversions we memorized:

1,000 millimeters = 1 meter 100 centimeters = 1 meter 10 decimeters = 1 meter 1,000 meters = 1 kilometer Multiplying and dividing with 10s is even easier! Thats why the rest of the world prefers to use METRIC rather than customary measurement. HOW TO CONVERT

Given: 200 centimeters = __________ meters Step 1: Write what conversion you KNOW between inches and feet in the same order as the problem. Know: ___________centimeters = 1 meter Step 2: Think AM I going bigger to

smaller or smaller to bigger? centimeters meters (small) TO (big) If you are going bigger to smaller, you will multiply! x If you are going smaller to bigger, you will divide! Step 3: Set up a math problem using

what you know with what you were given. Know: 1 meter = 100 centimeters Given: 200 centimeters 200 100 = Step 4: Ask yourself, Does my answer make sense?

There are 2 meters is the same as 200 centimeters. HOW TO CONVERT Given: 45 kilometers = __________ meters Step 1: Write what conversion you KNOW between inches and feet in the same order as the problem. Know:

1 kilometer = 1,000 meters Step 2: Think AM I going bigger to smaller or smaller to bigger? kilometers meters (big) TO (small) If you are going bigger to smaller, you will multiply! x If you are going smaller to bigger, you will

divide! Step 3: Set up a math problem using what you know with what you were given. Know: 1 kilometer = 1,000 meters Given: 45 kilometers 45 x 1,000 =

Step 4: Ask yourself, Does my answer make sense? There are 45,000 meters is the same as 45 kilometers.
