Converting Units

Students learn the following customary units of measurement: inch, foot, ounce, ton, fluid ounce, pint, gallon, yard, pound, cup, quart, and so on. Students also learn to convert from one customary unit of measurement to another using the following conversion factors: 60 seconds = 1 minute, 7 days = 1 week, 3 feet = 1 yard, 16 ounces = 1 pound, 4 quarts = 1 gallon, and so on. Students are then asked to solve problems using conversion factors, such as 18 feet = ____ inches.
