REVIEW OF MEASUREMENT LEQ: HOW CAN VARIOUS MATERIALS BE MEASURED USING THE METRIC SYSTEM?

HOW WOULD YOU MEASURE THESE OBJECTS?

LEQ 1: WHY DO WE USE METRIC IN SCIENCE IF WE DONT USE IT ANYWHERE ELSE?

THE METRIC SYSTEM -Based on base units: grams, liters, meters -Based on units of 10 -Conversion involves simply multiplying or dividing by 10

THE METRIC SYSTEM

HOW TO CONVERT 1 gram = ? Kg Really like 1.0g Going from small to large so move Left to divide Moving 3 spaces to the left =.001kg

HOW TO CONVERT 1L = ?mL Really like 1.0 Moving from large to small so to The right and multiply Move three spaces to the right so 1,000 mL

PRACTICE WITH A PARTNER 1.12 g = ? mg 2.20 cm = ? m 3.9,000mL = ?L 4.8 Dg = ? G 5.200dL = ? hL
