This metric system review video tutorial provides an overview / review of how to convert from one unit to another using a technique called dimensional analysis or the factor label method. It shows you how perform conversions with SI units in the metric system and in the english system including units that contain exponents such as squares and cubes. It provides unit conversion practice problems that relates to chemistry, physics, algebra, trigonometry and even pre-calculus. It contains word problems that relates to density, linear & angular speed problems, and even a few sat proportion word problems.

Here is a list of topics:
1. A list / table of SI conversion factors in the english and metric system.
1 L = 1000 ml, 1 Kg = 1000 g, 1 m = 100 cm, 1 ft = 12 in, 3 ft = 1 yd,
1 ml = 1cm^3, 16 oz = 1 lb, 1 m^3 = 1000 L, 1 lb = 453.6 lb,
1 cm = 10 mm, 1 km = 0.6214 mi, 1 in = 2.54 cm, 1 qt = 946 ml
1 gal = 4 qt, 1 gal = 3.785 L, 1 mi = 5280 ft
