Metric 3 (Distance)

Measures PowerPoint Presentation

Metric 3  (Distance)

This is a PowerPoint math or maths presentation on metric units for distance.
We start by refreshing our memory of the mnemonic for metric prefixes from the earlier presentation and state the fact that the metre is the principal unit of length in the metric system. An interesting slide follows on the origin of the metre. We explain by means of a globe how the French Academy of Sciences defined the metre as one ten- millionth of the distance between the North Pole and the Equator.
We briefly look at using the earlier prefix table to look at converting the less common units such as hectometres, Decametres and decilitres before moving on to our main focus of conversions between the more common units, kilometres, metres, centimetres and millimetres. There then follows lots and lots of example questions/student questions (all with answers) on conversions between all of these units. There are lots of nice graphics to make the topic a bit more interesting and worksheets are included. This is a very nice presentation.
