Think for a minute of all the things in the world that you can measure:
In this book you are going to learn about five different forms of measurement--length, volume, weight, temperature, and time--and two different systems of measurement, the English system and the metric system.
Length, such as distance and height, is measured in the English units of inches, feet, yards, and miles, and primarily in the metric units of millimeters, centimeters, meters, and kilometers. Volume is measured in the English units of ounces, cups, quarts, and gallons, and primarily in the metric units of milliliters, liters, and kiloliters. Weight is measured in the English units of ounces, pounds, and tons, and primarily in the metric units of milligrams, grams, kilograms, and metric tons. Temperature is measured in the English units of degrees Fahrenheit and in the metric units of degrees Celsius. Time is measured in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, and millennia.
In this book you'll learn to master all the different types and systems of measurement. Try some of the fun activities and soon you'll know how to measure the length of an ant in millimeters, the height of a tree in feet, the volume of your bathtub in ounces, the weight of a spaghetti noodle in grams, and the temperature in your refrigerator in degrees Celsius. How long will it take you to master all the different units of measurement? Will it be seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, or decades? Get started and find out.
