Unit 2 Summary

Measuring Length & the Metric System

* English System: 12 in = 1 ft

3 ft = 1 yd

5280 ft = 1 mile

*Metric System: 1 km = 1000 m

1 hm = 100 m

1 dam = 10 m

1 dm = 0.1 m

1 cm = 0.01 m

1 mm = 0.001 m

* Dimensional Analysis - changing units within the English system, within the Metric system, and change units from English to Metric and vice versa

Weight & Temperature

* Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa (see picture below for formulas)

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqbkvEK46xM for examples

* Weight

English system: 16 oz = 1 lb 2000 lbs = 1 T

Metric system: 1 kg = 1000 g 1 hg = 100 g 1 mg = 0.001 g

(see picture below)

* Convert from weights from English system to Metric system
