How many jumps does it take?
Ladder Method 1 2 3 KILO 1000 Units HECTO 100 Units DEKA 10 Units DECI 0.1 Unit Meters Liters Grams CENTI 0.01 Unit MILLI Unit How do you use the “ladder” method? 4 km = _________ m 1st – Determine your starting point. 2nd – Count the “jumps” to your ending point. 3rd – Move the decimal the same number of jumps in the same direction. Starting Point Ending Point How many jumps does it take? 4. 1 __. 2 __. 3 __. = 4000 m

Practice Time Compare using <, >, or =
1000 mg = _______ g 1 L = _______ mL 160 cm = _______ mm 14 km = _______ m 109 g = _______ kg m = _______ km 1000 mg = 1 g 1 L = 1000 mL cm = 1600 mm 14 km = m 109 g = kg m = 0.25 km Compare using <, >, or = 56 cm m 7 g mg 56 cm < 6 m g > mg

10) 2000 mg to g 18) 50 cm to m 11) 104 km to m 19) 5.6 m to cm
