Questions to think about:

1. Design a mnemonic device to help you remember the metric root words.

2. Describe a different way to convert within the metric system (not the King Henry slider).

3. The song “Seasons of Love” from Rent describe a year as 525,600 minutes. Find two additional songs that describe measurement in a unique way, then convert that measurement into a standard measurement.

4. Do you think the US should switch to the metric system? What is your rationale?
