Let's Use the Metric System: A Supplement to Mathematics K-6.
This bulletin provides elementary school teachers with some information about the metric system and some suggestions for teaching it. A history of the development of the system is given followed by a grade by grade guide to objectives and activities to be used with lessons on measurement with the metric system. The activities stress the decimal character of the metric system and provide opportunities for the students to gain an intuitive feeling for the comparative size of the various units of measure. (JP)
