Storyboard Text

  • Tom and Angela are taking a plane ride to England.
  • We're in the UK.
  • Here they don't use the system of measurement we use.  People here use the metric system.
  • A few hours later...
  • After calling a taxi...
  • Here, they use meters for distance, liters for volume, and grams for mass/weight.
  • That's pretty cool.
  • Yep. Exactly.
  • So, like instead of paying the driver for meters, we're paying him for kilometers?
  • Yeah. they also have prefixes for their base units. Kilo, hecto, deca, deci, centi, mili.
  • Using mnemonics really help. For example, King Henry died drinking chocolate milk. 
  • I see. the prefixes all start with the same letters as the mnemonic. That's pretty cool!
  • How are we even supposed to remember all the prefixes?
  • I learned a lot today!
  • I guess you did.
  • The End.
