A little more Customary Work!

Today we took the opportunity to have a little fun AND do a bit more with the customary system.


If we are going from big units to small units, we MULTIPLY because we will need lots of those small units.

If we are going from small units to big units, we DIVIDE because we won't need that many of those large units.

Conversion factors:

12 inches in 1 foot
3 feet in 1 yard, 36 inches in 1 yard
5280 feet in 1 mile, 1760 yards in 1 mile

Five Tomatoes  (5-2-8-0)

16 ounces in 1 pound
2000 pounds in 1 ton

8 fluid ounces in 1 cup
2 cups in 1 pint
2 pints in 1 quart
4 quarts in 1 gallon

Good Luck with the Homework, Converting in the Customary System Worksheet.  Remember that the Test is Friday and the Study guide I handed out today is due Thursday!!!!

Have a good day!

-Miss K  :)
