|Visual mnemonic of increasing accuracy (in 3 or 4 steps).|
Celsius? Fahrenheit? Do you want to learn and practice a shortcut* to convert temperature in your head? Using ideas from earlier work (here and here), I made a voice user interface app for the Google Assistant! You can also find an in-browser version on API.AI:
Built using Actions on Google, API.AI, and Glitch.

*Accuracy is at worst only 1 degree off, plus 1% of the original number. This means you're covered for small numbers, and when you go into the hundreds, you'll be off by a couple degrees. For example: 300 F is actually 93.3 C, but 92 C is pretty close for a shortcut. You can progressively increase accuracy, but with a diminishing ROI or "return on effort": https://hchiam.blogspot.ca/2015/12/how-to-convert-temperature-f-c-quickly.html
