Interstate Consortium on Metric Education. Final Report.
Tardif, Robert; And Others
A consortium of representatives of 28 states and territories prepared a set of general guidelines and principles for implementation of the metric system. Twenty-three recommendations were made in three broad areas: development and evaluation of instructional material and pedagogy (11), implementation of changeover and promotion of public support (7), and pre-service and in-service teacher education (5). In addition to these recommendations, this report provides lists of topics and activities related to the metric system appropriate to classes at different grade levels and curricular areas. A discussion of the mass-weight controversy, and a copy of the 1974 congressional amendments concerning the use of the metric system of measurement are also included. (SD)
