**Includes 2 parts: Number (ex. 1, 2, 3, 4) Unit (ex. cm, mg, kL)**

Measurement Includes 2 parts: Number (ex. 1, 2, 3, 4) Unit (ex. cm, mg, kL) Ex. 8 cm, 22 mg, kL

2
**Prefixes: come before a word**

Centi- centimeter (cm) 1/100 Century (100 years) Milli- milligram (mg) 1/1000 Millennium (1000 years) Kilo- kiloliter (kL) x 1000 1000x larger

3
The Metric System

4
**Length Meter (m): basic unit for length Meter Stick: tool used to**

measure length

5
Meter Stick

6
**Mass amount of matter (stuff) in an object Kilogram (kg) – basic**

unit of mass Balance - tool used to measure mass

7
**Volume: amount of space an object takes up Liter (L) – basic unit**

of volume Graduated cylinder – tool used to measure liquid volume

8
**Meniscus - bottom curve of**

water line (in a graduated cylinder) Cubic centimeter - cm3 = mL (length x width x height)

9
**Temperature Celsius – metric measurement for temperature**

Thermometer – tool used to measure temperature

10
**Examples - Boiling Temp. 100 oC - Freezing Temp. 0 oC**

- Body Temp oC - Room Temp oC

11
**Conversion Factor a fraction that always equals “1” 1 m = 1000 mm**

Length 1 m = 1000 mm 1 m = 100 cm 1000 m = 1 Km 1 cm = 10 mm

12
**Measuring Length How many millimeters are in 1 centimeter?**

1 centimeter = 10 millimeters How many millimeters are in 1 centimeter? What is the length of the line in centimeters? _______cm What is the length of the line in millimeters? _______mm What is the length of the line to the nearest centimeter? ________cm HINT: Round to the nearest centimeter – no decimals. Ruler:

13
**Conversion Factor Volume 1 L = 1000 mL 1 L = 100 cL 1000 L = 1 KL**

1 cL = 10 mL

14
**Conversion Factor Mass 1 g = 1000 mg 1 g = 100 cg 1000 g = 1 Kg**

1 cg = 10 mg

15
**Measurement/Metric System**

What are 4 types of measurement? What are some tools used for measurement? 1. Length 2. Mass 3. Volume 4. Temperature What are the 2 parts of a measurement? - Number and Unit 1. Meter Stick 2. Balance 3. Grad. Cylinder 4. Thermometer Identify 3 prefixes. * Centi- * Milli- * Kilo-
