More Conversions.

29 04 2015

When is the most economical long distance trip? When you have a hire-car with unlimited mileage.

Today my daughter drive 550miles after we did a morning cruise. The interesting aspect was that our Google map instructions gave kilometres whilst the speedo and road directions were in miles. We discussed our method of conversions. I went to school pre calculators and so always resort to fractions. She uses decimals.

As I notice all the fractions of a mile to the next destination I cannot help but wonder if U.S. students are better with their understanding of fractions than Australian students, because they see then so much more.
