Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will convert units of temperature using a formula.

You will need a calculator!

We have two standard measures of temperature in this country.

We used to use Fahrenheit (F), which is still used in the USA.

We now mostly use Celsius (oC), which is used in most of Europe.

There is a formula to convert between them:

Celsius to Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit (oF)  =  Celsius (oC) x 1.8 + 32

Fahrenheit to Celsius

Celsius (oC) = (Fahrenheit (oF) - 32) ÷ 1.8

Let's look at a typical question.

Example

Convert 22oC  into o

We use the formula: Fahrenheit (oF)  =  Celsius (oC) x 1.8 + 32

oF = 22 x 1.8 + 32

oF = 39.6 + 32

oF = 71.6oF

Are you happy with that?

Then let's try some questions.
