The metric system was given the motto, “For all the people, all the time,” because working in tens is so logical that it can be used and understood by everyone—not just scientists and engineers.

Irene Stephens, who headed up the teaching of math in Charlotte’s schools, states that children take to the metric system as “ducks to water” and both children and teachers “are always delighted when metric measures are involved.” As an American who didn’t learn the metric system in elementary school, its inclusion—beginning in Book 4 of the CMEA series—is a real highlight for me.
