  • 1. The Metric System What is it and Conversions
  • 2. What is the metric system?
    • The  metric system  is an international system of measurement, that is the common system of measuring units used by most of the world. The  “International System of Units” is the official system of measurement for almost all nations. The metric system has some different variations in different countries but is the most commonly used.
    • Some of the main and most commonly used measurements in the metric system are:
    • Kilograms, grams, milligrams, centre metres, metres, millimetres, kilometres, litres, millilitres and more.
  • 3. Liquid conversions
    • Litres-millilitres
    • Millilitres-Litres
    1 L = 1000 ml 1000ml = 1L 4 L= 4000 ml 9000ml = 9 L
  • 4. Weight Conversions
    • Grams, Milligrams, kilograms.
    • 1 g = 1000 mg
    • 1000 mg = 1 g
    • 1000 g = 1 kg
    • 1 kg = 1000 g
    • 1 kg = 1 000 000 mg
    • 1 000 000 mg = 1 kg
    13 g = 13000 mg 43 kg = 43000 g
  • 5. Length Conversions
    • 10mm = 1 cm
    • 1 cm = 10 mm
    • 1 m = 100 cm
    • 100 cm = 1 m
    • 1 m = 1000 mm
    • 1000 mm = 1 m
    • 1 km = 1000 m
    • 1000 m = 1 km
    • 1 km = 10 000 cm
    • 10 000 cm = 1 km
    • 1 km = 100 000 mm
    • 1 000 000 mm = 1 km
    60 mm = 6 cm 9 cm = 90 mm 2 m = 200 cm 8000 mm = 8 m 1000 m = 1 km 3 000 000 mm = 3 km
  • 6. Use the metric system! It is better than the other one Americans use. (and less complicated!)
