### Length: Measurement Conversions

Miss Oberlander

When you are converting on the fly,

Bigger to smaller, you multiply!

When you’re converting, don’t hide,

Smaller to bigger, just divide!

• 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 =

• 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 =

• 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 =

• 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!

• That’s why the rest of the world prefers to use METRIC rather than customary measurement.

• 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 =

• 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 =
