Metrics across the Curriculum.
Rowsey, Robert E.; Jones, Michael L.
Middle School Journal, v25 n1 p39-40 Sep 1993
The Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 states that the United States will use the metric system by 1996. This act will affect much of the middle school curriculum. Teachers responsible for teaching units with measurement activities in science, math, and other curricular areas should require students to develop estimating skills while learning to measure common environmental objects.
