How do UK grades convert to the US GPA?

I saw that the average GPA for admission to the graduate school is approx. 3.35. Looking the equivalent if you are a graduate from an UK university (i.e., First, 2/1 etc)?

Degrees in the UK are usually evaluated by large pieces of coursework and a final exam at the end of the module, term, year or degree. In the US, classroom participation and regular testing/homework make a large impact on your result. For this reason, it's important to attend every class and make your voice heard in discussions.
