### March 21, 2011 How to Convert Metrics – The Easy Way!

In class on Friday we heard a story about a king. His name was King Henry and he loved to drink chocolate milk, so much that he wanted everyone, I mean everyone (bugs, animals, people) to all be able to drink chocolate milk. The only problem was there were not drinking glasses for everyone. The king drank his milk from a liter glass and that just was appropriate for the bugs of his kingdom or the giants. So he had his royal carpenter make glasses for everyone in the kingdom.

From large to small, this is the order of the glasses that were made by the royal carpenter.
Kilo, Hecto, Deka, Unit, Deci, Centi, Milli
To remember the correct order of the glasses the royal carpenter suggested the king say this phrase. “King Henry Does Usually Drink Chocolate Milk”
To convert metrics you need to “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” this is the chart I made for you on yellow paper. For example, if the problem is
3.4 km =  ________mm (You are to put your finger on kilo and then count the steps to land on milli. This will be the number of places you move the decimal point. Also remember the direction you were walking because this will be the direction you move the decimal.
 H D U D C M KILO HECTO DEKA UNIT DECI CENTI MILLI King Henry Does Usually Drink Chocolate Milk Liter Meter Grams

You will move the decimal point 6 places to the right to give you 3,400,000 mm
This is much different than the way your book teaches you
Another way to do this same conversion is to count the number of places you need to move and make it a power of 10. For example since we are moving 6 places this would be 106. We can do this because each jump is a multiple of 10 (you multiply by 10 every box you move to) So you will multiply by 106 or 1,000,000. To get your answer
When you are moving to the right you multiply
When you are moving to the left you divide

### AN UNUSUAL DAY OF MATH GONE HORRIBLY WRONG

I had a very unusual activity for the class today, we headed off to the computer lab to check out a new website we have never used before. I went prepared with 2 backups incase technology wasn't on my side. Well you guessed right, technology was not my friend today, 1st attempt; I'm not sure what happened, everything just started working really slowly and that means crazy kids. 2nd attempt; I think we almost blew up the site, come to find out only 16 students can be on the same chat at one time so that didn't work with 30 + kids. 3rd attempt; I had the kids come to the blog and sign up as followers, this meant they had to use their newly given school email addresses to create a google account in order to be a follower. This also didn't work out. Of the 30+ students 4 were successful in creating their Google account and can now follow on the blog.

Nothing got accomplished today, :(
