Metric Review 1 u = 100 centi = 1,000 milli 1 kilo = 1,000 u = 100,000 centi = 1,000,000 milli Deci, hecta, deka are rarely, if ever, used. Learn Mili, Centi, and Kilo and you will become the champ.
When converting, ask yourself this: 1) Where is my decimal point? 2) Is the unit I’m converting to BIGGER or SMALLER than the original unit?
Smaller = move the decimal point RIGHT
Bigger = move the decimal point to the LEFT
3) How many places do I move the decimal? - King Henry Died Monday drinking Chocolate Milk
Count the number of steps from your starting to ending point.
Move the decimal that number of points.

Jeopardy! 6 Teams, 6 clickers. Winning team gets 5pts on the test. This is for a participation grade. Don’t participate = get a 0. If I am missing a clicker, a clicker is broken, or you aren’t using the clicker properly, you won’t use them for the rest of the year.
Wrap-Up Do you like reading? Why or why not? When you see somebody reading a book in public, what do you think about that person? What did we learn today? What is due next class?
