METRIC SYSTEM PREFIXES USING THE INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM OF UNITS

2
METRIC UNITS Let’s review Metric Units with Tim and Moby!

3
METRIC UNIT HELPFUL HINT To memorize the six prefixes you really need to know, remember this sentence: King Henry Doesn’t Usually Drink Chocolate Milk

4
METRIC UNIT HELPFUL HINT If you look closely, you will see that each prefix is ten times bigger than the one to its right and one-tenth as big as the one to its left.

5
METRIC CONVERSION LINE If you write the prefixes in a line, you can use this to convert from one measurement to another.

6
TIM’S AND MOBY'S EXAMPLE Tim’s and Moby’s example… How many milligrams are in 5 Hectograms?

7
On your prefix line, write the number above the prefix and place your finger under the prefix.

8
Count the number of units your finger passes while moving to the unit you’re converting.

9
Take your number, and move the decimal point the same number of places in the same direction.

10

11
Add a 0 for each place the decimal moves.

12
There you have it: 5 hectograms is the same as 500,000 milligrams.
