Cooking Measurement and Conversion Chart

Cooking measurements can lead to a math lesson and a conversion chart can reinforce that lesson when needed.

While Joely was doubling the recipe for her super-chocolately cake the other day, I noticed that she was having trouble doubling certain measurements. So for math today, we sat down and talked fractions, kitchen measurements, and conversions for a while, and she seems to have a much better understanding now.

But I couldn't resist the opportunity to put some of what we talked about in a printable chart that I can post on the kitchen cabinet door for future reference. Among other things, the chart includes visuals for how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon, how many tablespoons are in a cup, and how many ounces are in a cup.

If you'd like to use the chart too, you can download the Basic Kitchen Measurements and Conversion chart. You might also like to check out my chart for remembering how many pints in a gallon.

For converting other measurements, has a good conversion calculator.

(NOTE: I realize that it's bad form to measure liquids in dry measuring cups, but this chart is intended to be more for a terminology equivalence. I apologize for taking a bit of creative license with the chart. )
