Summary
Abstract: In order to encourage changeover to the metric system of weights and measures by Americans, the National Bureau of Standards has developed a packet of materials using "metric" as a new language for communicating measurement information. Following the Metric Conversion Act of 1975, national policy is promoting the four basic metric units of measurement: meter (length and area), liter (volume), gram (mass) and celsius degree (temperature). Brochures include the history and use of the international system of units (SI), a reference guide to metric information, and practical calculations for the consumer. The kit contains a plastic ruler and pocket conversion card to help the user work with metrics
