4. 4. 1. The Metric System is also called… International System of Units SI System Metric System 2. The Metric system is based on tens
5. 5. Metric Unit 1. 2. 3. 4. Abbreviation What does it measure Equipment used
6. 6. Metric Unit Abbreviation What does it measure Equipment used 1. Meters - m Length – distance from one area to another Ruler, meter stick, tape measure
7. 7. How long is a meter? *Here are 2 reference points • 1 meter is from the floor to a door knob! • 1 meter is about as long as a baseball bat!
8. 8. Metric Unit Abbreviation What does it measure Equipment used 1. Meters - m Length – distance from one area to another Ruler, meter stick, tape measure 2. Grams g Mass – amount of matter an object has Triple beam balance
9. 9. • How much matter does 1 gram have? Eraser on a pencil Small paper clip
10. 10. SAYING MASS IS EASY... Simply Lose Weight! • What is the difference between mass and weight? Mass measures matter and the amount of matter you have doesn’t depend on gravity. Weight is a measurement of gravitational pull. You weigh less at the equator because you are far away from the magnetic poles!
11. 11. Metric Unit Abbreviation What does it measure Equipment used 1. Meters - m Length – distance from one area to another Ruler, meter stick, tape measure 2. Grams g Mass – amount of matter an object has Triple beam balance 3. Liters l Volume – amount of space in a liquid Graduated cylinder
12. 12. Metric Unit Abbreviation What does it measure Equipment used 4. Celsius c Temperature – how much heat something has thermometer • 0 degrees is freezing • 100 degrees is boiling
13. 13. Here is a rhyme to help you with some reference points for Celcius… • 30 is warm, 20 is nice, 10 is cold, and 0 is ice! • A hot day is about 30° Celsius. • Butter melts at 31 degrees Celcius. • • Hot Coffee is about 75 degrees Celcius
14. 14. The Metric System is made up of 6 prefixes. Each prefix has a numerical value. Prefix Kilo Number value 1000 Hecto Deci Centi Milli k 100 h 10 Deca Basic unit Symbol da 1 m, l, g .10 or 1/10 .01 or 1/100 .001 or 1/1000 d c m To help us remember the order
15. 15. mnemonic!! Prefix Number value Symbol To help us remember the order Kilo 1000 k King Hecto 100 h Henry Deca 10 da Died Basic unit 1 m, l, g Basically Deci .10 or 1/10 d Drinking Centi .01 c Chocolate Milli .001 or 1/1000 m milk or 1/100
