Another MIja Math Video....converting measurements

We're on a video role.
Remembering whether to multiply or divide to convert a measurement can be a challenge unless you remember the "hand jive."  

So it's little to big divide. Big to little multiply.

Take changing inches to feet. You're going for little to big, so you'll divide.

If you are going from kilometers to meters, you'll multiply.

It was really cute seeing my students in class doing the hand jive while taking a test!
