Bio 123 HW 1: Metric System (15pts)
Now that you are familiar with metric system and you have calibrated your steps, you are able to determine the area of any large expanse. Select two large areas (e.g., a city block, campus expanse, etc.). Determine the area in m^{2} of each area. Then convert your area in m^{2} to hectares. Many of you are likely familiar with the measurement of area known as an acre. In the metric system we measure large areas in hectares, which is equal to an area 100 m x 100 m or 10,000 m^{2}. *Hint: Pick a rectangular area.
