Customary Measurement Chart

When teaching measurement, I find that students need two things: lots of practice measuring real objects and a chart summarizing what they need to know.
Like the Metric Measurement Chart, students can use this chart and a calculator to make conversions:

  1. Find the column that matches the unit you are starting with. 
  2. Move down until you find the space where it shows one. 
  3. Move along the row until you find the equal amount for the unit you are converting to. 
  4. This is the amount by which you multiply.
