Metric System - Help

The Metric System Concept Builder builds student strength in understanding conversion between metric units. An emphasis is placed upon understanding the Greek prefixes milli-, centi, and kilo-.There are three scaffolded activities that lead students to an understanding and comfort with these three metric prefixes. There are a total of 20 questions in this Concept Builder. They are organized into 8 different Question Groups and spread across the three activities. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 8 situations. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
