Students will learn to convert metric units by applying concepts in word problems. Exercises and worksheets incorporate length (meters), and optional practice offers more instructions on mass (grams) and volume (liters).
When Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps won a race by .01 of a second, we saw how significant a hundredth of a second can be! This series offers practice with decimals to build a solid understanding of the place value system.
Encourage students to explain the relationship between decimals and fractions to help them with future computations. Use this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson Area with Decimals and Fractions.
