This resource contains notes for teaching students metric conversions. Conversions are taught using kilo-, hecto-, deka-, unit, deci-, centi-, milli- only. I use the method in which students count the number of jumps between prefixes, and then move the decimal point accordingly. There are three example problems following the explanation and ten practice classwork problems. A homework handout is included for more practice. All answer keys included.
If you have not yet introduced the metric system, you may want to begin with my Introduction to the Metric System
