I'm a secondary school maths teacher with a passion for creating high quality resources. All of my complete lesson resources come as single powerpoint files, so everything you need is in one place. Slides have a clean, unfussy layout and I'm not big on plastering learning objectives or acronyms everywhere. My aim is to incorporate interesting, purposeful activities that really make pupils think. I have a website coming soon!

A presentation to get pupils thinking a about the origins of the metric system.
There’s quite a lot of information in there, but I think its interesting so I’m going to make my pupils look at it!

There are no worksheets or ‘usual’ metric questions, but I’ve put some follow up questions and possible activities in the comments boxes on each slide. Please let me know if you have any better ideas as mine are a bit lame.

Most of the information is taken from Wikipedia so please let me know if you see any innacuracies!

An interesting set of slides looking at the history and usage of metric measurements. Might be of use when introducing this topic.
