This multi-level teacher's guide for the metric system was developed by a committee appointed by the Alabama Metric Education Advisory Council. It forms a core from which a comprehensive program of study and activities may be developed. Information in the guide includes: (1) a measurement overview; (2) goals and objectives of metric instruction, grades K-12; (3) a sequence chart; (4) explanation of the International System of Units; and (5) additional information in the form of materials lists (per grade level). There are also tables, charts, drawings, instructions for class-made items, and strategies for teaching. (MP)
