A History and Overview of Metrication and Its Impact on Education.
Odom, Jeffrey V.
This paper gives a brief history of measurement systems and of the controversy surrounding the adoption of the metric system as the standard system in the United States. The metric study called for by legislation in 1968 is described, and recommendations for a coordinated national program to change to the metric system are outlined. Some implications for education are discussed, with brief comments on curriculum, textbooks, teacher training, educational materials, and three general teaching suggestions. (DT)
