Why America Should Use the Metric System

Why America Should Use the Metric System Most modern technology is designed using the metric system. If we want competitive young adults, they need to be able to use metrics as easily as students in other countries. Students in the United States are frequently criticized because our country lags behind other countries in math scores. However, we set our children up for failure because our country obstinately refuses to learn the metric system. We are the last developed country in the world to still insist in using our own system of quarts, gallons, feet, miles, etc. Nearly all the other countries in the world … even very small, poor countries … use the metric system. Compared to the system we use, there are very few metric system problems. On the other hand, how many people know how many feet or yards are in a mile? In the rest of the world, any school child can tell you that there are 1000 meters in a kilometer. The math metric system was originally adopted in France in 1791, and has been recognized as the international standard of measurement since the 1960’s. What are some additional reasons that we should convert to metrics? The Metric System is Easier The metric system is based on the number 10. Everything is either divided or multiplied by 10, 100, 1000, etc. If we adopted the metric system measurements, we would no longer have to deal with remembering confusing numbers such as 12 inches in a foot, 36 inches in a yard, 3 feet in a yard, 4 quarts in a gallon, etc. Instead, our numbers would be similar to the way we count money … 100 pennies in a dollar, 10 dimes in a dollar, etc. For example, there are 100 centimeters in a meter, and 1000 meters in a kilometer. Easy, right? [read the rest]
