ConverTable Units is a simple application to convert various units.
Lots of tools of the kind have already been created, but there are (at least) two big reasons to use Synergy Creations' ConverTable Units:
- it accepts "unit conversion plug-in" files, so it's extensible and can handle far more than the thousands of possible conversions already built-in,
- it TEACHES how to do unit conversions. Just click the "show tutor" triangle, and ConverTable Units shows you how it is "thinking" about the conversion you've asked it to do. In fact, ConverTable Units "thinks" about conversions using a "unit cancellation" method widely taught in high school and college science courses. By showing how conversions are done, (not just spitting out an answer!) ConverTable Units represents a great teaching and learning tool.
