Recap on Tuesday’s lesson. Converting Temperatures. Today you will be able to convert temperatures from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit and vise versa. Definitions for this lesson are: Degrees: the measure of temperature, how hot or cold something is Celsius: using the metric system
The thermometer to the left shows common temperatures in both degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius.
When using the formula, simply plug in the given degree in Celsius and solve using order of operations.
Lets solve , for C
Now that we have our new formula, we can use it to convert temperatures from degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius.
I want you to get into pairs, (yes, that means ONLY 2 per group).
With your partner, I want you to use the following information to create two different bar graphs, one in degrees Fahrenheit and one in degrees Celsius. I want you to convert each temperature so that you have each cities temperature in both measures.
Put the city name alphabetically along the x-axis
