Product Description
Our students always seem to struggle when doing metric system conversions, especially because they are so used to doing conversions in our standard system of measurement that we use in the U.S. When introducing your students to the metric system, this conversion chart will come in handy for the students to use as a quick reference or "cheat sheet". Eventually, with enough practice and use of the conversion chart, they will be able to convert easily on their own.

This conversion chart is based on a ladder, and each rung on the ladder represents how many times the decimal point needs to be moved for each conversion.

For example, say one of your questions looks like this: "Convert 2.75 kilograms to milligrams." The student would look at the conversion chart where it says "kilo", count how many steps on the ladder it takes to get to "milli", and they can easily answer this question.

Students have told us that they appreciate having the conversion chart, because it really helps them understand the conversion process when they are first learning the metric system.
