Fun Facts About The Metric System

Now, let’s delve into some captivating facts about the Metric System, which parents and teachers can share with their enthusiastic learners:

  • In 1799, France made history by introducing the metric system, with the meter as its fundamental unit of length. Prior to this, France had a staggering 250,000 different units of measure, which surely caused much confusion. The advent of the meter revolutionized the way we measure things, and it quickly gained popularity.
  • Nowadays, the Metric System is adopted by every country in the world, except for the United States, Liberia, and Burma. That amounts to a whopping 192 countries!
  • In the United States, the meter is primarily used by the military, scientists, and industrial workers. So, who says we can’t learn it too?
  • Have you ever heard the phrase “traveling at the speed of light”? Well, in 1983, it was discovered that the distance covered by light in a vacuum in one second is exactly one meter. That’s an astonishing speed—1/299,792,458 of a second, faster than the blink of an eye!

To make things even handier for you, we’ve included some helpful conversions:

  • One centimeter equals 0.393701 inch (in.)
  • One inch equals 2.54 centimeters (cm)
  • One centimeter is equivalent to 1/100th of a meter

Now, cover the screen and test your memory. Can you recall any of the facts? Go ahead and impress your parent or teacher with what you’ve just learned!
