This class provides a thorough explanation of the English and metric measurement systems, the units they use, and how to convert measurements between units. Measurements that use base units include distance, mass, weight, and temperature. Measurements that use derived units include area, volume, and speed. Converting between metric and English units involves multiplying or dividing measurements by equivalent values. However, reference charts are often available to help make conversions. Units of measurement are used every day in a production environment. Converting units is often required, especially for businesses that operate internationally. After taking this class, users will be able to calculate conversions for units within the English system, within the metric system, and between the two systems.
