LEARNING SKILLS
FOR EVERYDAY USE IN AMERICA

Choose From the Following Subjects

 If a dime is about
 1 millimeter thick...
then 1000 dimes placed side by side  would be
  To measure any length, a meter stick or  tape measures accurately without complicated figures or fractions.


Athletic tournaments throughout the world are measured in metric dimensions.

This diving board is
10 meters tall.

  
An Olympic sized pool is
50 meters long.

        

 

Longer Distances like the height of a mountain can be measured in meters...

 

 


and so can the length of a bridge


 or a waterfall.

 

Smaller Measurements from a meter

1 centimeter

 Remember, centi is the prefix meaning
1 one hundredth of the base unit meter.
So, 1 one hundredth of a meter (0.01 m)
is simply written 1 cm

Smaller Measurements from a  centimeter

millimeter
(1 mm)

Remember, milli is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So 1 one thousandth of the base unit meter,

(1 km)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning
1000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters (1000 m)
being the length of 1 kilometer,
is simply written 1 km which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur".
