Here’s a Little Rap to Help!

When you are converting on the fly,

Bigger to smaller, you multiply!

When you’re converting, don’t hide,

Smaller to bigger, just divide!


How to convert
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 =

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 =

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 =



What about conversions with metric
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!

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


How to convert3
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 =



How to convert4
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 =
