Big Ideas: The same measurement can be represented in multiple ways (e.g. 1 year = 12 months or 365 days). Larger numbers do not necessarily represent a larger quantity. There are many examples of measurement units that can be converted. In this lesson, students apply what they know about making conversions to new measurement units. Students will use multiplicative comparisons to understand conversion facts and apply these conversions to problems. Students will need to attend to precision by correctly labeling all measurement units. Special Materials: Calculator
