02.07.20- Converting from Imperial to Metric


Imperial units of measurement are the units first defined in the British Weights and Measures Act 1824 and were widely used throughout the British Empire. Britain now officially uses the metric system, however, we still see lots of imperial measures in our society (inches, miles, pints, gallons, pounds, ounces). Because of this, it can be useful to know how to convert between metric and imperial.


For today's task you will be creating conversion graphs for gallons to litres, and litres to pints. See attached document.


To do this you must first draw the axes, then mark the conversions on the graph.

For example on the gallons to litres;

1 gallon= 4.5 L
2 gallons = 9L
3 gallons= 13.5L

Once you have done both graphs you can use these to find the missing measures in the Challenge section.

There is also an extra challenge looking at converting imperial units of length.
