    This lesson picks up from where the first two in this series left off, but this time the units being converted are square units. The method used in this unit conversion is similar to the previous lessons, but because these are measurements of area, the result is a little different. This is a great lesson to watch to understand unit conversion for the area of shapes. This topic can be difficult for students to wrap their minds around.
