This template was established specifically for the Biology in elementary schools project and is reflected on several discussion pages aimed at students in that group to provide rapid feedback. Before editing this template please contact user:dmccabe; I'll be more than happy to set up similar templates for use by others.

Example of the template text


Metric system

Please use the metric system for all measures and use the appropriate symbol in the correct case based on the Système International d'Unités (SI units). Imperial (US or English) units should be placed in parentheses if they are important (pint jars for example). This is important for at least two reasons:

  • The scientific community adopts the metric system and we should model that for children in science class
  • This is an international resource and SI units are internationally recognized. Imperial units vary from place to place.
