The worksheet generator

This worksheet generator makes worksheets for conversion of various measuring units. You can choose to include inches, feet, yards, miles, ounces, cups, pints, quarts, gallons, ounces, pounds, millimeters, centimeters, meters, kilometers, grams, kilograms, liters, and milliliters. You can also make worksheets for the metric system: units with the prefixes milli, centi, deci, deka, hecto, and kilo.

The options are numerous: you can choose the number of problems, font size, space below the problems, the decimal separator (comma or point), the thousands separator, the number of decimal digits, difficulty level, and more.

After you have generated a worksheet, you can print it from your browser, or SAVE it from the browser's "file" menu under File -> Save As. If you save it, you can then edit it using Word or other word processing program. Also, to get another worksheet with different problems but using the same options, just refresh the page from your browser window (press F5).

All worksheets come with an answer key. You can print the worksheet directly from your browser, or save it on disk using the "Save as" command of your browser.

If the problems on the worksheet do not fit the page, choose a smaller font, less cellpadding, fewer columns of problems, or print in landscape.

Use these quick links to generate worksheets for some common tasks. With the actual generator, you can customize them more.
