Metric Education in Mathematics Methods Classes.
Trent, John H.
A pre-test on knowledge of the metric system was administered to elementary mathematics methods classes at the University of Nevada at the beginning of the 1975 Spring Semester. A one-hour lesson was prepared and taught regarding metric length, weight, volume, and temperature. At the end of the semester the original test was given as the post-test. This paper gives the results of both tests and concludes that, even though not significant, improved knowledge was noted in the areas surveyed. It is stated that more than one hour may be needed to teach metrication to future elementary teachers, but one hour is valuable. (JBW)
