1 1 THE METRIC SYSTEM MASS & CAPACITY

2 2 Mass - weight w In the metric system, all units are defined in terms of a basic unit. w The basic unit of mass in the metric system is the gram.

3 3 Everyday items you could use to associate with mass in the metric system. w milligram - a grain of salt w gram - large paper clip kilogram - math textbook

4 4 Mass - grams 1 gram = 1000 milligrams 1 kilogram = 1000 grams

5 Metric Units of Mass and Capacity Measurement Conversion Using a bridge map can help organize your thinking when converting from one metric unit to another.

6 as (just like) Relating factor

7 Metric Length Conversion Example: 3 kg = _____ g 1 kg = 1000 g 3 x 1000 = Large to small as (just like) Relating factor 1 kg is equal to 3 kg 1000 g 3000 g X 1000

8 Metric Length Conversion Example: 6000 g = ___ kg 1000 g = 1 kg 6000 ÷ 1000 = 6 6 Small to large as (just like) Relating factor 1 kg is equal to 6 kg 1000 g 6000 g ÷ 1000

9 Metric Length Conversion Example: 7 g = _____ mg 1 g = 1000 mg 7 x 1000 = Large to small as (just like) Relating factor 1 g is equal to 7 g 1000 mg 7000 g X 1000

10 Metric Length Conversion Example: 4000 mg = ___ g 1000 mg = 1 g 4000 ÷ 1000 = 4 4 Small to large as (just like) Relating factor 1 g is equal to 4 g 1000 mg 4000 mg ÷ 1000

11 11 Capacity - volume w In the metric system, all units are defined in terms of a basic unit. w The basic unit of capacity in the metric system is the liter.

12 12 Everyday items you could use to associate with capacity in the metric system. w milliliter - 10 drops of food coloring w liter - a small pitcher of water w kiloliter – hot tub or spa

13 13 Capacity - liters 1 liter = 1000 milliliters 1 kiloliter = 1000 liters

14 as (just like) Relating factor

15 Metric Length Conversion Example: 9 L = _____ mL 1 L = 1000 mL 9 x 1000 = Large to small as (just like) Relating factor 1 L is equal to 9 L 1000 mL 9000 mL X 1000

16 Metric Length Conversion Example: 2000 mL = ___ L 1000 mL = 1 L 2000 ÷ 1000 = 2 2 Small to large as (just like) Relating factor 1 L is equal to 2 L 1000 mL 2000 mL ÷ 1000

17 17 Metric conversions kg to gx 1000 g to kg 1000 g to mgx 1000 mg to g 1000 L to mLx 1000 mL to L 1000
