Have you ever needed to convert inches into centimeters?  Did you search around for a conversion table for an hour just to find out that 1 inch equals 2.54 centimeters?  Or maybe you had a tougher conversion, and you couldn't find a conversion factor for that.  Or worse, you found a conversion factor—but you realized you had no idea how to use it to get the right answer!  Synergy Creations' ConverTable Units™ addresses all of these situations! That's ConverTable Units as in "Conver(sion) Table (of) Units." First of all, it's a unit converter.  Yeah—yawn.  We know--it's been done before…and generally, ConverTable Units converts units, just like other apps:

But, there are (at least!) two big reasons to use Synergy Creations' ConverTable Units:
(1) ConverTable Units accepts "unit conversion plug-in" files, so it's extensible and can handle far more than the thousands of possible conversions already built-in.
(2) ConverTable Units 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.
