Neighbors – Imperialism vs. Metric


Were you stuck with the imperial system, wishing that you learned the metric system? Or were you pressured to learn both systems?

What are your preferences?

  1. Love the metric system! Can’t beat base ten. I am just old enough to remember the switch – hadn’t really learned imperial measurement. But I have to convert all the time for my dad who lives in California – keeping my math skills sharp!

  2. I learned both but since imperial is so prevalent in the US, I know what one foot looks like, how long a mile is and the approx. volume of a quart while their metric counterparts are harder for me to visualize. The simplicity of the metric system is incredible though, I wish the US could adopt it as well.
