The Metric System and Its Impact on Business Education.
Cameron, H.J.; And Others
Designed for business educators desiring to understand their role and responsibility in training students on the subject of metrics, this guide is a compilation of information supplemented by resource lists and discussion of the implications for specific business education courses. An introduction discusses the U.S. government and the metric system, the meter as a standard of measurement, metrics in education, and metric terms. Sections follow on commonly listed advantages of the metric system, the need for instruction, the instructional program, teaching materials, and metric topics for instruction. A short think-metric questionnaire is included along with a list of objectives and test questions for a short metric workshop or course. A section is devoted then to discussion of how metrication will affect business and industry, how it will affect business mathematics and mathematics-oriented business subjects, how it will affect consumer education, and how it will affect typewriting and related subjects. Appendixes contain various metric charts and other teaching aids and bibliographies of teaching materials and other resources for further information and for use in curriculum development. (HD)
