Did you know that National Metric Week is drawing to a close?
Here's how the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) pitches it:
Break out your rulers. It's time to celebrate National Metric Week. This fall the week of October 6-12 (the 10th month of the year and the week containing the 10th day) will be set aside to celebrate the metric system. Americans will have an opportunity to focus on the importance and convenience of the measurement system based on 10s.
Check out the resources available on the NCTM page and squeeze in a celebration before it's too late.
