Reviewing Conversion Factors

Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Did any of your classmates use a method that is different from the one you used to find the conversion factors and solve the problems?

  • Take notes on the different approaches.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Explain how you used the ruler to find conversion factors.
  • Where do you see the conversion factor in your method? Where do you see the answer?
  • Why is multiplication rather than division the correct operation to use to make the conversions?
  • What happened to the units as you performed the multiplication?
