Presentation Transcript

### To change from a larger unit to a smaller unit, you need to multiply.

### To change from smaller units to larger units you divide by a power of ten.

Meters, Grams and Liters

The Metric System

- The metric system is a measurement system based on our decimal (base 10) number system.
- Other countries and all scientists and engineers use the metric system for measurement.

Metric Prefixes

- Metric Units
- The metric system has prefix modifiers that are multiples of 10.

Meters

- Meters measure length or distance
- One millimeter is about the thickness of a dime.

Meters

- A meter is about the width of a doorway

Meters

- A kilometer is about six city blocks or 10 football fields.
- 1.6 kilometers is about 1 mile

Changing Metric Units bracelet?

- To change from one unit to another in the metric system you simply multiply or divide by a power of 10.

1 km x 1000 = 1000 m

1 m x 100 = 100 cm

1 cm x 10 = 10mm

Place Values of Metric Prefixes multiply.

Movethe decimal point to the right to multiply.

Place Values of Metric Prefixes multiply.

1000mm ÷ 10 = 100cm

100cm ÷ 10 = 10dm

10dm ÷ 10 = 1m

Place Values of Metric Prefixes power of ten.

Movethe decimal point to the left to divide.

Place Values of Metric Prefixes power of ten.

You're on a roll!! power of ten.

Thumbs up! power of ten.

You are first rate!! power of ten.

Way to shine! power of ten.

Awesome job! power of ten.
