Information on the Metric System
Date: 10/20/95 at 16:12:49 From: Anonymous Subject: Help for a parent.. Found you through the Web and was wondering.... My daughter is in 5th grade and they have begun to study metrics. Being an old person myself, metrics and I have never really been acquainted. Her math book is less than satisfactory and I hoped you might have a suggestion on what publications I should look at for assistance -- anything on the Web would be that much better! Thanks for taking the time to look at this -- it is appreciated! Kathy Monahan
