  1. Metric Conversions: Ladder Method

  2. 1 2 3 MetersLitersGrams Starting Point Ending Point __. __. __. 2 3 1 Ladder Method KILO1000Units HECTO100Units DEKA10Units DECI0.1Unit CENTI0.01Unit MILLI0.001Unit How do you use the “ladder” method? 4 km = _________ m 1st – Determine your starting point. 2nd – Count the “jumps” to your ending point. 3rd – Move the decimal the same number of jumps in the same direction. How many jumps does it take? 4. = 4000 m

  3. Compare using <, >, or = 56 cm 6 m 7 g 698 mg • Practice Time 1000 mg = _______ g 1 L = _______ mL 160 cm = _______ mm 14 km = _______ m 109 g = _______ kg 250 m = _______ km 1000 mg = 1 g 1 L = 1000 mL 160 cm = 1600 mm 14 km = 14000 m 109 g = 0.109 kg 250 m = 0.25 km 56 cm < 6 m 7 g > 698 mg

  4. Write the correct abbreviation for each metric unit. 1) Kilogram 2) Meter 3) Gram 4) Milliliter 5) Millimeter 6) Liter 7) Kilometer 8) Centimeter 9) Milligram Convert the following: 10) 2000 mg to g 18) 50 cm to m 11) 104 km to m 19) 5.6 m to cm 12) 480 cm to m 20) 16 cm to 13) 5.6 kg to g 21) 2500 m to km 14) 8 mm to cm 22) 65 g to mg 15) 5 L to mL 23) 6.3 cm to mm 16) 198 g to kg 24) 120 mg to g 17) 75 mLto L

  5. Answers 1) kg 2) m 3) g 4) mL 5) mm 6) L 7) km 8) cm 9) mg 10) 2 g 11) 104000 m 12) 4.8 m 13) 5600 g 14) 0.8 cm 15) 5000 mL 16) 0.198 kg 17) 0.075 L 18) 0.5 m 19) 560 cm 20) 160 mm 21) 2.5 km 22) 65000 mg 23) 63 mm 24) 0.12 g 25) < 26) > 27) = 28) = 29) < 30) >
