All about Metric.
United States Metric Board, Arlington, VA.
This booklet was designed to increase awareness about the metric system. Why the metric system is being used increasingly is described. Pictures illustrate simple comparisons of the most commonly used units of the metric and customary systems. Calculations using both systems are compared through presentation of three problems. Next, everyday units of measurement are listed. Finally, what metric use will mean in the marketplace, in the home, and at work are discussed. (MNS)
