MEASUREMENTS AND EQUIVALENTS

Mr. T.

The car represents a cup (c.)
The boy driving the car is Mr.
Tablespoon (T.)
You must be 16 years old to drive…
So remember 16 T. = 1c.
1 C.
   OZ. (ounce) can’t drive.
He is only half as old as              OZ.
Mr. T.
   How old is he?            Oz.
   8
   So remember there are
8 oz. in a cup.

1 C.
3 t. =1 T.

teaspoons
Mrs.
T.

   Mrs. Tablespoon (T.) had triplets.
   She named them the teaspoons (t.)
   So remember there are 3 t. in 1 T.
4 qt. = 1 gal.

   Our butterfly “GAL” is a cutey (qt.)
   She has 4 “cutey” (qt.) wings
   So remember there are 4 qt. in a gal.

Doubling and Halving Recipes

   To double the ingredients in a recipe you times
the number by 2.
   For example: 2 eggs x 2 = 4 eggs

or   ½ c. sugar x 2 = 1 c. sugar

or   2/3 t. salt x 2= 4/3 or 1 1/3 t. salt
Yippee! Fractions

HERSHEY’S
CHOCOLATE BAR
   From 1 piece I have cut two.

1/2                     1/2

   The bottom number or denominator tells how
many pieces are in your whole item.
Now divide those two halves
again. How many pieces do you
have now ?

1/4         1/4          1/4          1/4

There are four pieces now so the bottom
number of your fraction will be 4. The higher
the number on the bottom the smaller the
pieces will be
Top number or numerator

   The top number of the fraction tells you how
many of the pieces you have. If I gave you
these 3 pieces how many fourths would you
have?
You would
have 3 of the
fourths
or 3/4
Multiplying fractions-

   2x1   2
1 2   2   or
   To half the ingredients in a recipe you times by
½. (or divide by 2)
   For example: 2 eggs x ½ = 1 egg

or     ½ c. sugar x ½ = ¼ c. sugar

or     2/3 t. salt x ½ = 2/6 t. or 1/3 t. salt
Good Measurements to Know

   1 cube of butter = ½ c.
   16 ounces = 1 lb.
   1/3 c. = 5 1/3 T.
   2/3 c.= 10 2/3 T. (just twice the one above)
   Pinch = less than 1/8 t.
   1 Square of Chocolate = 1 Oz.
