2 METRICS

3 Measurements are relative!! Foot = human foot Inch = 3 barley corns Yard = nose to outstretched fingertip Mile = 1,000 paces Gallon = simply the name for a pail

4 Why is there a need for one system of measurement? Universal acceptance Accurate measurement

5 Do you know our current system? How many inches in a foot? How many feet in a yard? How many feet in a mile? How many ounces in a cup? How many cups in pint? How many pints in a quart?

6 Le Systeme International d’Unites SI

7 7 Standard Metric Base Units Unit of length (metre) Unit of mass (kilogram) Unit of temperature (kelvin) Unit of time (second) Unit of electric current (ampere) Unit of amount of substance (mole) Unit of luminous intensity (candela)

8 Measurements Length (m) Mass (kg) Volume (L) Temperature (K or C) Time (s)

9 English to Metric conversions 1 gallon = 3.78 liters 1 pound = 453 grams 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters 1 foot =.3048 meters 1 yard =.91 meters 1 mile = 1, 609 meters 1 tsp = 5 ml

10 Length Analogies 1 km = 5 city blocks (8 blocks = 1 mile) 1 hm = little longer than a football field 1 dam= about the height of a 3-story building 1 m = length of a baseball bat or golf club 1 dm = nearly the length of a crayon 1 cm = width of little finger / pencil 1 mm = thickness of an ID card

11 Mass Analogies 1 kg = 2.2 lbs = approx. weight of textbook 1 hg = thin razor cell phone 1dag = 2 nickels 1 g = weight of a small paperclip 1dg = toothpick 1cg = adult housefly 1 mg = weight of a piece of dust

12 Volume Analogies 1 kl = large aquarium 1 hl = helium tank 1 dal = medium-sized bucket 1 L = water bottle 1 dl = small-sized hair products 1 cl = 1 ml = single drop of liquid / teardrop

14 Metric Conversions

15

16 Kilo Big prefix Means- Times 1000

17 Hecto Big prefix Means- Times 100

18 Deka Big prefix Means- Times 10

19 X This is where the root of each prefix is. This is one. 1 gram (g) – 1 meter (m) – 1 Liter (L)

20 Deci Small prefix Means- Divided by 10

21 Centi Small prefix Means- Divided by 100

22 Milli Small prefix Means- Divided by 1000

23 1 gram = _____ kg gram = _____ hg gram = _____ dag 0.1 X _____ gram = 1 dg _____ gram = 1 cg _____ gram = 1 mg

24 1 gram = _____ kg gram = _____ hg gram = _____ dag0.1 _____ gram = 1 dg _____ gram = 1 cg _____ gram = 1 mg Q UI Z Q U I Z

26 LENGTH 1 KILOMETER approximately the length of 6 city blocks 1 HECTOMETER little longer than a football field 1 DEKAMETER about the height of a 3-story building 1 METER about as long as a baseball bat about the height of the door handle from the floor 1 DECIMETER nearly the length of a crayon 1 CENTIMETER width of your pinky finger 1 MILLIMETER thickness of a dime
