Metrics in Career Education.
Lindbeck, John R.
The United States is rapidly becoming a metric nation. Industry, education, business, and government are all studying the issue of metrication to learn how they can prepare for it. The book is designed to help teachers and students in career education programs learn something about metrics. Presented in an easily understood manner, the textbook's eight chapters provide information, illustrations, and exercises on the following topics: (1) introduction to metrics (background, the SI base units, and measurement), (2) metric practices and standards, (3) metric drafting, (4) metrics in metalworking, (5) metrics in woodworking, (6) metrics in power and energy, (7) metrics in graphic arts, and (8) metrics in home economics. Related metric learning activities conclude each chapter. Conversion tables are appended. (BP)
