Metric conversion at a glance

 

Metric unit conversion involves converting between metric units of measurement, for example between centimetres and millimetres, which are metric units of length. Converting to a larger unit or a smaller unit might be done to make the measurement easier to understand or to perform calculations. 

 

We use metric measurement units for length, area, volume, mass and capacity. In order to convert metric measurements, we need to know the conversion rates for different units . For example, the metric conversions for converting units of length are 1km=1000m , 1m=100cm and 1cm=10mm . It can be helpful to look at a conversion chart which shows these values. 

 

The metric system uses different prefixes to mean different things. Examples of these prefixes are milli, centi and kilo. Wherever kilo is used, for example, it means 1000 of the unit. 1kg=1000g and 1km=1000m .

 

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional conversions worksheets and other ratio and proportion worksheets, for example a ratio worksheet or a simplifying and equivalent ratios worksheet.
