Just when you feel like you have mastered math, it seems that teachers throw you another curve ball. It helps keep you on your toes and helps to prepare you for life and the world ahead. So here we are once again delving into another area of math known as the metric system.
If you were born in a country other than the U.S., Liberia or Burma, you would have grown up using the metric system. In reality, it is an easier system to work with than the U.S. system, also known as the American system or the English system. It is easier because it works in base 10 conversions.
The metric system is a set of standardized units of measurement based on the number 10. Why 10? Well, it is because humans have 10 fingers. It is also the system that is virtually used by every scientist in the world, as well as the medical profession. The metric system uses “meters” to measure length and distance, “grams” to measure mass or weight, and “liters” to measure volume.
