Welcome to the Think Metric website — the quick and easy way
The metric system has been taught in British schools since the mid-1970s and we are surrounded by metric measurements in everyday life. However, a lot of British people still think in inches, feet, pounds, stones and pints; and often have difficulty in understanding metric measurements.
This website provides an introduction to the metric system and includes a set of metric “visual clues” for a whole range of everyday objects. This will enable you to instantly recognise almost any metric measurement you may encounter.
Explore the site now to find out how to use the metric system, and just how easy it really is. When you start to think metric, you will be amazed at just how helpful it can be.
