Johnson, Willis N.; And Others
This module was prepared to "metricate" approximately 3800 teachers in Western Kentucky. A brief history of measurement systems is followed by sections concerning length, mass (weight), temperature, and area and volume measurement. Each section contains a list of the common metric units used and their relationship as well as activities for learning to think with metric measures. A pretest and posttest are included. The appendices contain treatments of the metric system rules and units; metric units for everyday use; recommendations, ideas, and teaching suggestions for developing metric programs and introducing the metric system; and a bibliography of metric publications along with a list of metric materials available at no cost to teachers as well as available inexpensive metric publications.
