Customary Conversions

Today began our exploration of the customary system.  We talked about the customary system being really confusing and a little strange.  For example, the conversion factors in the customary system are...  2, 3, 4, 8, 12, 16, 36, 1760, 2000, and 5280.  That is a lot to memorize!!!

We used "Gallon Boy" to help us with the capacity units.

Many of you were familiar with the units of measure for distance...  Inches, feet, yards and miles.

We measure weigh using ounces, pounds and tons.

We started talking about zodiac signs in class today...  If you want to check that out, please feel free to check out this link!

Tonight's homework is to complete the customary conversions worksheet and Study for Friday's Test.

I hope to add more about conversions later, so keep checking back!
