Creator: Brownridge, Dennis R., 1944-
Publisher: Colorado State University
Description: This resource is a comprehensive guide on SI for teachers, students, and professionals. It contains tables, charts, and text explanations of base units, derived units, equivalencies, common quantities, and prefixes. To aid the learner in visualizing quantities, drawings of common multiples are provided for each of the base units. The materials are written so that a user with no prior experience with metrics can comprehend the measurements and how they are applied mathematically. This resource, written by Dennis Brownridge, is excerpted from a larger set of materials on the metric system.
