Status of Metric Teaching in Forestry Education
Abstract:In an informal survey, 40 teachers at 38 schools (out of 55 schools receiving a questionnaire) strongly favored use of Canadian metric standards in the absence of U.S. standards, and also urged that the Society of American Foresters take steps to facilitate U.S. conversion to metric. Twenty-four of the respondents were teaching metric as part of their basic mensuration course.
