After this lesson, you will be able to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

The lesson begins by teaching you that the formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius is C=(5/9)(F-32). It leads you to learn that by isolating the variable F, the formula for Fahrenheit is F=(9C/5)+32. It concludes by offering the use of 2 for 9/5 and 1/2 for 5/9 to easily estimate the temperature.

Learn about temperature conversions by seeing Glen and Nigel settle into their roommate arrangement.

This video includes key concepts, notation, and vocabulary such as the formulas for the conversion of temperature measurements from Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice-versa.

Before watching this video, you should already be familiar with solving linear equations by isolating one variable and solving word problems by replacing unknown variables with given quantities.

After watching this video, you will be prepared to solve real-world situations and problems that involve other measurements with formulas using whole number exponents like area and volume.
