Inch-Pound System

The Metric System

 A meter is about as long as a  baseball bat.
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.

#### 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

### 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

## 1 millimeter (1 mm)

### Remember, milli is the prefix meaning 1 one thousandth (0.001). So 1 one thousandth of the base unit meter, being 1 millimeter is simply written 1 mm

Larger Measurement from a meter

### 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".
