Description
Series Description
This series has two specific general objectives: to motivate viewers to become interested in and to want to know more about the metric system of measurement; to teach the viewers metric terms and metric units and to relate in a common-use way the more familiar metric units of measurement. "The United States is steadily becoming more and more aware of the fact that it should change, for several good reasons, to the metric system. This series was produced with the hope of making the transition from the customary to the metric system as 'painless' as possible."--1974 Peabody Awards entry form.
