Measuring - Metric System focuses on the metric system.
Viewers learn about the metric units used to measure length, volume and mass, and how to make metric
conversions. Interesting examples from real life will help viewers develop a sense of size in metric
terms - from very small to very large. The program includes a discussion of where the metric system
has become dominant, and why it is considered an improvement over the standard (English) system
still used in the United States.
