Conversion within quantities of same units and between quantities of different units is a thorny subject to students of Jasikan College of Education (Butterfield, Sutherland, & Molyneux-Hodgson, 2000) and its treatment by tutors sometimes becomes very difficult such that most tutors resort to handling the subject theoretically/ abstractly. When this happens most students seemed not to comprehend the subject. In view of this, the Reverse DTML-Conversion model (i.e. The Reverse D-Conversion model, The Reverse T-Conversion model, The Reverse M-Conversion model and The Reverse L-Conversion model) was designed. The Reverse DTML-Conversion Model is a model that has been designed by the researcher to make the teaching of conversion in measurement very easy to tutors and meaningful to students.

Keywords: The Reverse D-Conversion model; The Reverse T-Conversion model; The Reverse M-Conversion model; The Reverse L-Conversion model; mathematical formula
