### 1. How to Convert Units in the English System of Measurement

The English measurement system uses particular units to describe distances, lengths, and areas. Identify the conversion factors between the different units in the English measurement system, and see an example of land acreage calculation.

### 2. Multiple Unit Multipliers: English System of Measurement

Unit multipliers are a great tool for converting units. In this lesson, we will explore using multiple unit multipliers to convert units within the English system of measurement through definition and examples.

### 3. How to Convert Units in the Metric System

When using the metric system, it is helpful to know how to convert units from other systems. In this lesson, explore the metric system, how to set up a conversion, and how to calculate those units, with some additional practice.

### 4. Multiple Unit Multipliers: Metric System of Measurement

Unit multipliers are a great tool for when you want to convert from one unit to another. This lesson will review unit multipliers in the metric system, and we will look at how to use multiple unit multipliers when unit conversion is more involved.
