### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Metric System and the International System of Units

Includes PowerPoint Presentation and Notes for both the Teacher and the Student

Engage your students with this interactive lesson on the metric system. The slides are colorful, attractive and visually pleasing, keeping my students attentive and on-task.

Easy and Convenient: If you teach multiple periods of the same class, this product allows you to be instantly ready when the new groups of students arrive. Ready to use year after year.

This powerpoint is on the metric system and solving problems using dimensional analysis. It consists of 19 slides that cover the following topics:
1) The International System of Units
2) The seven base units in the SI System
3) Advantages of using the SI system
4) SI Prefixes: giga, mega, kilo, hecto, deca, deci, centi, milli, micro, and nano
5) Units used in measuring length, mass and volume
6) Practice problems to check for understanding
7) The steps to follow to solve a problem using dimensional analysis
8) Practice problems using dimensional analysis
9) Problems on converting between units. These start very easy and get harder. Some examples: Convert km to m, convert km to dm, convert g/cm3 to kg/m3.

This product includes a complete set of notes for the teacher, and an outline of the notes for the students. Students will use the outline as the powerpoint is being presented and will fill in the notes as the lesson is being taught.

This powerpoint and set of accompanying notes can be used with any science class. It is most appropriate for students in grades 6-10.

This product, along with 11 other related products can also be purchased in a bundled unit called Metric System and Scientific Measurement Unit Plan of 12 products

This product is also included on my Science Skills CD, a shipped item.
