Metric units: meter, gram, liter, centigrade. Prefixes (kilo, milli...; see Appendix 1, p. 198).

**RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN METRIC AND ENGLISH MEASUREMENTS**Conversion practice:

**GRAPHING**- Independent variable along horizontal (X, or abscissa) axis.
- Dependent variable along vertical (Y, or ordinate) axis.

Record student heights on board.

`p. 2`Plot on a bar graph or line graph (instead of scatter plot graph).**SURFACE AREA/VOLUME**Surface area/Volume (Add l, h, w, on data sheet, near top of p. 6)

- Surface area of a box: SA = 2(lw + lh + wh)
- Volume of a box: lwh. SA/V Calculator

- Surface area of a box: SA = 2(lw + lh + wh)
**MASS AND VOLUME RELATIONSHIP OF WATER**`p. 3`- Measure volume of 100 ml water in a beaker. (Hint: 1 ml = 1 cc)
- Measure mass (weight) of 100 ml water - measure from meniscus.

- Measure volume of 100 ml water in a beaker. (Hint: 1 ml = 1 cc)
**HEAT MEASUREMENT**Graph cold and warm water over time.

Record body temperatures on board.

`p. 4`**VOLUME BY DISPLACEMENT**
