Description

Overview:
Adult ESL learners may not know the American measurement system. The United States is one of only five countries still using Fahrenheit to measure temperatures (see list below). Simplifying the conversion can help our learners make sense of local temperatures. The method below is “a reasonable approximation”, not an exact calculation.

I see an opportunity to show algebraic reasoning in this lesson. Rather than giving them the formula, I like giving them examples of converted temperaatures and let students come up with the algbraic equation.

I think the assessments would be to write the algebraic equation in both directions and then explain your reasoning. Just giving worksheets is rote memory of skills and does not lend to conceptual understanding.
