Dimensional Analysis: Using the Idea of Identity MultiplicationReflecting over my years of teaching, I have found that students are challenged by what would seem to be an easy question – “How do we convert from one unit of measure to another?” When confronted with this type of question, I have come to recognize that many students fall back on relying on a procedure that they try to recall.
