The Metric System

#### 35 mm of rain is a torrential downpour. Rainfall is measured in millimeters.

 1000 mm (millimeters) 1 meter #### If a "dime" is about 1 mm (millimeter) thick, then 1000 dimes placed side by side would be Rainfall is measured in millimeters (mm)

Snowfall is measured in centimeters (cm)

 Larger Measurement from a millimeter

## 1 centimeter (1 cm)

### Remember, centi is the prefix meaning 1 one hundredth of the base unit meter. So, 1 one hundredth of a meter (0.01 m) is simply written 1 cm

Larger Measurement from a centimeter

### Remember meter is the Base Unit for Length and all other Units are derived from it. There are exactly 1000 millimeters (1000 mm) in 1 meter (1 m)

Larger Measurement from a meter

### Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning 1000 times as much. So, one thousand meters (1000 m) being the length of 1 kilometer, is simply written 1 km which is pronounced "KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur".
