3. 4. Metric System
4. 5. <ul><li>Length—Base unit is METERS </li></ul><ul><li>Mass—Base unit is GRAMS </li></ul><ul><li>Volume—Base unit is LITERS </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature—Measured in DEGREES CELSIUS </li></ul>Measurement
5. 6. Prefixes Milli (1/1000) or .001 Centi (1/100) or .01 Deci (1/10) or .1 Base Unit (meter, liter, gram) or 1 Deka (10) Hecto (100) Kilo (1000)

7. 8. Unit Factoring-example Km—Hm—Dkm—m—dm—cm—mm Move decimal space right or left accordingly! 2.5mm = ? Hm 1.2Km = ? m =.000025HM =1200m
8. 9. Unit Factoring K m— H m— D km— m — d m— c m— m m Use a mnemonic device to remember sequence K ing H arry ’s D aughter M arried D irty C harlie M oore Use a song to help remember it!
9. 10. Factor-Label Method See Notebook Examples …
