Description: This simple to use app show conversions for almost any kind of measurement (anything from Acceleration to Volume). Choose the type of measurement you have (example: length). Enter your measurement (example: 4.7 yd). Then see the same measurement in other units (example: 4.29m, 169.2in, etc). The app also has a built in ruler (at the bottom under "other") for measuring small items (up to 19cm or 7.5in).

  • The ruler only includes marks at the whole and half cm or in.
Integration Ideas:
    • Math
      • Have students check their work after converting units for a problem.
      • Use the ruler to measure small items and record what you measured.
    • Science
      • Use the ruler to measure small items and record the measurements.
