1 International System

2 BASIC UNITS Meter: a little longer than a yard (about 1.1 yards) Liter: a little larger than a quart (about 1.06 quarts) Gram: a little more than the weight of a paper clip

3 Symbols in Metrics Metric symbols never have periods: –km, hm, dam, m, dm, cm, mm –kl, l, ml –kg, g, mg These are SYMBOLS – not abbreviations!

4 Width of a door frame 1 m Width of a finger 1 cm Thickness of a fingernail 1 mm A bit more than half a mile 1 km Metric length meters

5 Metric Mass grams A small paperclip 1g about the mass of a textbook 1kg 1/100 th of a small paperclip 1mg

6 Half of a 2 liter soda 1l 500 2l bottles of soda 1kl 1/5 a teaspoon 1ml Metric volume liters

7 1ml = 1cm 3 = 1cc

8 Thirty is hot Twenty is nice Ten is chilly Zero is ice Metric Temperature Celsius
