Measuring SI ze

2
What is SI?

3
**(or International System of Units)**

Systeme Internationale d’Unites (or International System of Units) Abbreviated SI (System of International Measures) It is the internationally accepted standard units of measure. Formerly known as…

4
The Metric System

5
**The SI Base Units are… What it measures Base Unit Length Meter (m)**

Mass Kilogram (kg) Volume Liter (l or L or ℓ) Time Seconds (s) Temperature Kelvin (K) Amount of a substance Mole (mol) Electric Current Ampere (A) Luminous Intensity Candela (cd)

6
**Basic units of the SI system:**

Length = meters (m) Mass = gram (g) Volume = liter (L or l)

7
**“I’m ten times better than the way you measure now!”**

The SI System “I’m ten times better than the way you measure now!”

8
**Let’s see why… Fill in the blanks (do the math mentally):**

13 miles = ____yards ____feet ____inches 2 1/2 gallons = ____quarts ____pints ____cups ____ounces (22,880 yds) (68,640 ft.) (823,680 in) (10) (20 p) (40 cups) (320 ounces)

9
**That was not the SI system!**

What number is the SI system based on? SI 10

10
**Let’s see why 10 is an easy base to use.**

35
Nice Job! If you can multiply & divide by 10 (or any power of 10), then the metric system will be easy for you.

36
** Checkpoint: Metric units are based on multiples of what number?**

Multiply--Move the decimal to the right Divide--Move the decimal to the left

37
**Scientists created different sized units of measure by adding prefixes to the base units.**

It’s kind of like using a cup as a basic measure and using 1/2 a cup, 1/4 of a cup, or 1/3 of a cup for the smaller measures.

38

39
What is length? Length is the distance from one point to another

40
**The basic unit of length in the SI system is the …**

meter

41
Pause… How big do you think a meter is? Find something you think is a meter in length.

42
THE METER The meter is the starting point for measuring length in the metric system. START

43
Here’s a meter stick!

44
**It takes 10 decimeters to make up 1 meter.**

45
**It takes 10 centimeters to make up 1 decimeter.**

46
**1 decimeter = 10 centimeters, **

If 1 meter = 10 decimeters and 1 decimeter = 10 centimeters, then how many centimeters make up 1 meter?

47
**That’s right! 1 meter = 100 centimeters**

48
100centimeters = 1 meter

49
**It takes 10 millimeters to make up 1 centimeter.**

Boy, that’s small!

50
If 1 meter = 10 decimeters and 1 decimeter = 10 centimeters and 1centimeter = 10 millimeters then how many millimeters make up 1 meter?

51
**That’s right! 1000 millimeters = 1 meter**

52
**It takes 10 millimeters to make up 1 centimeter.**

Millimeters are so small that they almost run together.

53
**Checkpoint One centimeter is divided into how many millimeters?**

10 millimeters (mm)

54
**Now let’s take a closer look at some measuring devices.**

55
**This is a magnified image of a ruler/meter stick.**

1 2 3 4 This is one centimeter.

56
**This is a magnified image of a ruler/meter stick.**

1 2 3 4 This is half of a centimeter.

57
**This is a magnified image of a ruler/meter stick.**

1 2 3 4 This is one millimeter.

58
This key measures 3 cm. 1 2 3 4

59
**Or you could say that it measures 30 mm.**

1 2 3 4

60
This key measures 2.5 cm. 1 2 3 4

61
**Or, you could say that it measures 25 mm.**

1 2 3 4

62
1 2 3 4 This toy car measures 4.2 cm.

63
1 2 3 4 Or, you could say it measures 42 mm.

64
**The metric system deals with powers of 10**

1 meter = 10 decimeters = 100 centimeters = 1000 millimeters

65
**How many centimeters make up 2 meters?**

66
**That’s right! There are 200 centimeters in 2 meters.**

67
**How many millimeters make up 2 meters?**

68
**That’s right! There are 2000 millimeters in 2 meters.**

69
**How many decimeters make up 2 meters?**

70
**That’s right! There are 20 decimeters in 2 meters.**

71
The metric system really is 10 times better than our standard system of measurement. It is very easy to convert from one unit to another.

72
**You must simply multiply by 10, 100, or 1000**

You must simply multiply by 10, 100, or OR You must simply divide by 10, 100, or 1000.

73
The end.
