If you’re a busy parent with school-aged kids, sometimes science and math homework might make you itch. There are some things I know I should remember, but that I have to look up every single time! One of those questions is, “How many cups in a quart?”
I know I should know the answer but when it comes to all of those conversions — cups in a quart, quarts in a gallon (okay this one I’m pretty good at because it’s called a quart), pints in a quart, and pints in a gallon — I’m pulling out my phone.
They just never stuck with me, I guess.
But then a teacher friend taught me a trick one year and it’s helped me with homework and when I’m in the kitchen!
