Product Description
My students need a lot of "hand-holding" as they are learning to convert one system of units to another, such as converting miles per hour into feet per second. The method on this worksheet walks them through the process, step-by-step, so that they can successfully accomplish this goal.

It basically uses a dimensional analysis approach, in which they need to select conversion factors (such as 1 mile per 5280 feet, or 5280 feet per mile) by which to multiply an expression without changing its value, but changing its appearance.

I use it within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.

The file includes spiral review problems.

This worksheet is intended for students to show their work on a separate sheet of paper.

Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
