Lesson Plan: Converting between Imperial and Metric Units of Measure Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to use approximate equivalences to convert between metric and imperial units of measure.
Students will be able to
- convert between metric and imperial units of length, namely, between centimeters and meters and inches, feet, and yards,
- convert between metric and imperial units of mass, namely, between grams and kilograms and ounces and pounds,
- convert between metric and imperial units of capacity, namely, between milliliters and liters and pints and gallons,
- recall and use approximate metric–imperial conversions.
Students should already be familiar with
- imperial units of measurement,
- metric units of measurement.
Students will not cover
- converting between metric units,
- converting between length units in different dimensions (e.g., ).
