Nice Job!

If you can

multiply & divide

by 10 (or any

power of 10), then

the metric system

will be easy for

you.

THE METER

The meter is the starting point

for the metric system.

START

Here’s a meter stick!

It takes 10 decimeters to

make up 1 meter.

It takes 10 centimeters to

make up 1 decimeter.

If 1 meter = 10 decimeters

and

1 decimeter = 10 centimeters

then how many centimeters

make up 1 meter?

That’s right!

1 meter = 100 centimeters

100centimeters = 1 meter

It takes 10 millimeters to make

up 1 centimeter.

Boy, that’s

small!

If 1 meter = 10 decimeters

and

1 decimeter = 10 centimeters

and

1centimeter = 10 millimeters

make up 1 meter?

That’s right!

1000 millimeters = 1 meter

It takes 10 millimeters to make

up 1 centimeter.

they almost run together.

Now let’s take a

closer look at some

measuring devices.

This is a magnified image

of a ruler/meter stick.

This is a magnified image

of a ruler/meter stick.

1 2 3 4

This key

measures 3 cm.

1 2 3 4

Or you could say

that it measures

30 mm.

1 2 3 4

This key

measures 2.5 cm.

1 2 3 4

Or, you could say

that it measures

25 mm.

1 2 3 4

1 2 3 4

1 2 3 4

The metric system deals with

powers of 10

1 meter =

10 decimeters =

100 centimeters =

1000 millimeters

How many centimeters

make up 2 meters?

That’s right! There are

200 centimeters in 2

meters.

How many millimeters

make up 2 meters?

That’s right! There are

2000 millimeters in 2

meters.

How many decimeters

make up 2 meters?

That’s right! There are

20 decimeters in 2

meters.

The metric system really

is 10 times better than our

standard system of

measurement. It is very

easy to convert from one

unit to another.

You must simply

multiply by 10, 100, or

1000.

OR

by 10, 100, or 1000.

The end.
