Measuring Metric with Bill Nye

We are beginning to learn the Metric System. Some of our students are struggling with it. Hopefully this helps simplify things a bit.


  1. Dear Mr. Pahl
    That video was pretty helpful the one with Bill Nye but it was a little fast and that confused me so if there was a way to fix that it would be helpful.
    Sincerely, Jaymeson

  2. Dear Mr.Pahl,
    I love the Bill Nye because he makes learning super funny and enjoyable… so does Mr. Pahl. He makes Math, Science and practically everything funny. He is an intelligent man who wants to help us learn just like teachers.

  3. Dear Jameson,
    I really agree that this video is a helpful tool to learn the metric system. It also teaches us about measurements that we haven’t learned yet like micrometers.

  4. Dear Mr. Pahl
    I think that the video did help a little bit; but I couldn't quite make out what he was saying. To be honest with you, I don’t really understand the metric system. Maybe you could make a video explaining basic measurement.
