In Math we are having fun with measurements. We are learning liquid measurements from cups to gallons. Using food coloring and water, we are visually seeing how many cups are in a quart, how many quarts are in a gallon, and any other combinations we can think of.
I asked her, “Question, 1 gallon equals how many quarts“. She smiled and started towards the pump without answering the question. When she returned to the car, she answered back with all sorts of information on metrics, liquids, and measurements. After sharing conflicting information on this subject I wanted to learn more details. These systems work well in your favor when pumping gas, purchasing milk, water, volumes in certain sciences, and so much more. Before we get to the answer to the question, “how many quarts are in a gallon”, we must dig deeper into both metrics and get behind the workings of the genius that produces regulatory life.
