The Metric Occupational Training workbook series was developed in the 1970's by the Center for Vocational Education with the U.S. Department of Health Education and Welfare's Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education to provide useful educational information on length, area, volume, weight, temperature, and unit conversion. The resources are arranged in categories to make it easier to find specific topics. These workbooks include learning activities and quizzes that apply metric measurements within a variety of occupations but should be interpreted for today's occupations.
