• The metric system is a system used to measure length, weight, or mass. It is commonly used in science and math.
• Metric System
• Metric System
• How does it work?
• There is Kilo=1,000, Hecto=100, Deca=10, Then, there is the Base unit=1, after that is Deci=0.1, Centi=0.01, and last is  Milli=0.001

• Metric System
• Well, there are many steps to the metric system and their values
• When you move to the value on the right, you multiple by 10 each time.  When you move to the value on the left, you divide by 10 each time.
• Kilo      Hecto        Deca           Base              Deci                Centi                    Milli
• Yes, go-ahead Peter,  Now that you know the values we need to learn to convert them
• Can I use the bathroom?
• Convert 1,000 kilograms to milligrams. Multiply by 6.  Answer=1,000000,000 Milligrams
• Kilo      Hecto        Deca           Base              Deci                Centi                    Milli
• Lets do an example problem
• When you move to the value on the right, you multiple by 10 each time.  When you move to the value on the left, you divide by 10 each time.
• Kilo      Hecto        Deca           Base              Deci                Centi                    Milli
• Yes, go-ahead Peter,  Now that you know the values we need to learn to convert them
