In this lesson, students solve conversion problems involving metric liquid volume measurements. The first activity in this lesson focuses on base-ten structure and conversions and also gives students a chance to work with decimals, fractions, and powers of 10 in exponential form. The second activity is contextual and also involves work with fractions and decimals. It gives students a chance to practice multiplication (by numbers that are not powers of ten) either with whole numbers or a whole number and a decimal depending how they solve the problem.
