Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Demonstrate conversion techniques for units of measurement.

Definition

Demonstration should include converting U.S. customary units to Systems International (SI) units, and vice versa. Measures may include
  • distances/lengths
  • weights
  • volumes
  • energy (BTUs)
  • rates of power.
Use in context will solidify learning.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What case studies have shown the importance of proper conversion in engineering?
  • What can go wrong if you are inaccurate in converting between systems of measurement?
