Product Description
This 12 slide power point starts off with an engaging story about cooking with a European Grandma and how Grandma had to convert all her measurements from metric to the English system. From there it goes into some interesting facts about the metric system, including some funny comparisons between the metric system versus the english system from the now defunct metricsucks.com. Next up, is a discussion of the tools of measurement and the 3 basic units in the metric system. And finally, the prefixes of the metric system are introduced using the ladder method from kilo- down to milli- and conversions from unit to the next is demonstrated in both directions by moving the decimal. Practice problems in conversion complete the powerpoint.
