A Look at Metrics in Distributive Education.
Canei, Robert A.
The United States will convert to the metric system of measurement in the near future, and the distributive education programs in high school and at the adult level will have to train the needed personnel for business. The manual gives the basic conversion methods and instruction in teaching metrics. Metric programs conducted for business personnel would be the same as other distributive education programs, with the addition of promotion and publicity releases. The manual includes topical outlines and suggestions for the instructor in five sessions on program management, metric length, metric area, metric volume and capacity, and metric mass (weight). Transparencies testing materials, and student handouts accompany each section. Also included are supplementary materials, film summaries, promotional material, course evaluation sheets, and a list of material sources. (MF)
