blast from the past

Facebook message from a student: “Hey Ms. Buenafe! I really really need your help. I remembered us doing conversions but what was the phrase we used to remember it? Thanks!”

Two years ago, one of my 11th grade math classes came up with their own mnemonic to remember this metric conversion chart:

metric_ladder_500

Kelly hates donkeys because donkeys cause madness.

Bizarre as it was, that phrase stuck (at least to get the student to write to me about it!)
