Metrics in the K-8 Curriculum: A Multidisciplinary Guide to Transition.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Development.
These guidelines for the implementation of instruction in the metric system in grades K-8 were developed under the philosophy that students should develop the ability to use the metric system in all aspects of their lives. Therefore the approach outlined is an interdisciplinary one with minimal attention to conversion from the English to the metric system. Ten broad goals are stated, and behavioral objectives related to each goal are defined for each of the nine grade levels. Suggestions for activities are provided for each behavioral objective. A list of materials which can be purchased for use in each of these activities is accompanied by a list of addresses of suppliers. Criterion-referenced tests for each grade level are included. (SD)
