**Systeme Internationale Units of Measurement**

Meter Length Liter Volume Gram Weight or Mass

2
**How to remember different lengths in the metric system:**

When you think of a millimeter (mm) think of: The thickness of a dime. When you think of a centimeter (cm) think of: The width of your pinky.

3
**How to remember different lengths in the metric system:**

When you think of a meter (m) think of: The height of the doorknob. When you think of a kilometer (km) think of: A little more than half of a mile

4
**How to understand the ruler:**

One side has inches (duh!) The other side is the metric side. The big numbers represent centimeters The smaller lines represent millimeters. How many millimeters are in a centimeter? 10

5
**How to remember different volumes in the metric system:**

When you think of a liter (L) think of: About the size of a bottle of water. When you think of 5 milliliters (mL) think of: One teaspoon When you think of 2 kiloliters (kL) think of: A hot tub

6
**How to remember different masses in the metric system:**

When you think of a gram (g) think of: A paper clip When you think of a kilogram (kg) think of: A little more than 2 pounds.

7
**Measurement Conversions to Know:**

1 m = 100 cm 1 cm = 10 mm 1 m = 1,000 mm 1 km = 1,000 m 1 m = 1,000,000μm 1 g = 100 cg 1 cg = 10 mg 1 g = 1,000 mg 1 kg = 1,000 g 1 L = 100 cL 1 cL = 10 mL 1 L = 1,000 mL 1 kL = 1,000 L

8
**What is the order of the metric system?**

King Henry Died by Drinking Chocolate Milk King: Kilo Henry: Hecto Died: Deca By: Base (m, L, g) Drinking: Deci Chocolate: Centi Milk: Milli

9
**How to convert within the metric system:**

Example 1: to convert 3 meters into decimeters, multiply 3 by 10 one time. 3 m = 3* 10 dm = 30 dm Example 2: to convert 7 hectoliters into milliliters, multiply 7 by 10 five times. 7 hL = 7 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 mL = 700,000 mL

10
**Now you try: 7 km = __________ m 6 g = __________ cg**

9.15 kL = __________ L 6.25 kg = __________ mg 14.2 m = __________ cm

11
**How to convert within the metric system:**

Example 3: to convert 6 grams into kilograms, divide 6 by 10 three times. 6 g = 6 ÷ 10 ÷ 10 ÷ 10 kg = kg Example 2: to convert 17 millimeters into centimeters, divide 17 by 10 one time. 17 mm = 17 ÷ 10 cm = 1.7 cm

12
**Now you try: 14 mL = __________ L 3.97 g = __________ kg**

915 L = __________ kL 45 mg = __________ dag 10 m = __________ dam

13
13 kg = ________ g 0.013 390 13,000 1,300 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30

14
240 mL = _______ L 240,000 2.4 8 0.24 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
