In this lesson, we learn about conversions between units of measure for area and volume. We square and cube both sides of equations to create conversion factors, which we use to solve conversion problems. Through examples, we learn how to convert between different units of measure for area and volume, such as yards squared to centimeters squared and meters cubed to feet cubed. This knowledge will be useful in pre-algebra and even in the nursing program, where we will deal with other types of dimensions.
More conversions between units of measure, this time with area.
