  • Given a measuring cup, determine how many fluid ounces each common-sized bottle and can holds, each representing a cup, pint, quart, and gallon.
  • Determined how many of each unit is needed to convert into the next size up.
  • Practice using mixed operations to solve word problems pertaining to the conversion of liquid measures.

Challenge Problem:

Part 1: Match the unit of measurement to the correct number of ounces. (If you remember the order from smallest unit to largest, it might make things easier.)

 

Part 2: Solve the word problems.

Challenge Data:

Part 1:
Pint, Gallon, Quart, Cup 8 oz., 16 oz., 32 oz., 128 oz.

Part 2:
1) Bobby was milking his cow and has 3 quarts and pint of milk in his pail. How many more cups does he need to make a whole gallon?

2) Sandy is making a pot of hot chocolate that calls for 5 cups of milk. If she starts off with a full gallon, how many ounces of milk will be left after she makes the hot chocolate?

Tricky Bonus! It takes 3 gallons of milk to make 1 gallon of ice cream. How many gallons would it take to make a pint?

Guiding Questions:
Challenge Answer:

Part 1: cup = 8 oz., pint = 16 oz., quart = 32 oz., gallon = 128 oz.

Part 2:
1) Bobby needs 2 more cups. (3 quarts = 12 cups and 1 pint = 2 cups. Bobby has 14 cups of milk and needs 2 more to make a gallon)

2) 88 ounces of milk left. (5 cups x 8 ounces/cup = 40 ounces; 128 ounces - 40 ounces = 88 ounces)

Tricky Bonus! 3 pints. (The ratio of ice cream to milk needed is 1:3. So 1 pint of ice cream will need 3 pints of milk.
