Teaching Metric Measurements
Kaltsounis, Bob
Tennessee Education, 7, 2, 10-4, F 77
Eight recommendations on how to teach the metric system to both elementary and secondary students are presented in this article: let the students measure; use the word "about"; have students "guesstimate"; make comparisons; don't teach conversions; stress place value concepts; teach measurement as a three-step process; and "relax".
