Standards

AF2.1 Convert one unit of measurement to another (e.g., from feet to miles, from centimeters to inches).

Also covered: NS1.3

You can use the following benchmarks to help you understand fluid ounces, tons, and other customary units of measure.

Write this on p 124.

Example 1: Choosing the Appropriate Customary Unit fluid ounces, tons, and other customary units of measure.

Choose the most appropriate customary unit for each measurement. Justify your answer.

A. the weight of a car

tons; The weight of a car is similar to the weight of a buffalo.

B. the diameter of a soap can

inches; The diameter of a soup can is similar to the length of a few paper clips.

C. the weight of a newborn baby

pounds; The weight of a newborn baby is similar to the weight of more than a dozen apples.

Write this on p 125. fluid ounces, tons, and other customary units of measure.

Example 2: Converting Customary Units fluid ounces, tons, and other customary units of measure.

Convert 5,000 pounds to tons.

Write a proportion using a ratio of equivalent measures.

5,000 pounds is equal to 2.5 tons.

Example 3: Converting Between Metric and Customary Units fluid ounces, tons, and other customary units of measure.

One mile is about 1.6 kilometers. What is the length in miles of a 10 kilometer race? Round to the nearest tenth of a mile.

Write a proportion using 1 mile 1.6 kilometers.

Check It Out! fluid ounces, tons, and other customary units of measure. Example 3

One cup is about 8 fluid ounces. What is the amount in cups of a 35 fluid ounce container? Round to the nearest tenth of a cup.

Write a proportion using 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces.
