Therefore, the part is 5.08 cm long. Now, as for the 1/4 inch in diameter. Show that when you're going from a larger unit, to a smaller unit, we must divide 2.54 by 1/4 ..... or 2.54 (over one) times 4 over 1. Yes, the answer is 0.635. Guided Practice : Do several of these problems with students and check for understanding. Now for the fun part!!!! Independent Practice : Allow at least 30 minutes for some real fun! First, explain to the students that they will be working in pairs, and their work will be on one sheet of paper. Each student must blow at least four bubbles, while their partner takes their ruler, and measures the bubble in inches. The student with the ruler must record the the size of the bubble under their partner's name (in inches), and convert it into centimeters ..... showing all work. After the first student has blow their four bubbles, they must switch roles. While you're checking that each student is making the proper conversions, take lots of pictures!!!! You'll be amazed at how big some of these bubbles can get! .... and how they (amazingly) don't get it all over their faces!!! Have each group share with the class what their largest bubble was, and show their conversions on the board. Last, and most important instruction .... make sure they spit out their gum, BEFORE leaving your class!!! .... we don't want anyone to get written up for having gum! Hope you laugh as hard as I did!!!!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
