Highlighting the concept of measurement, this resource provides the know-how to use leveled texts to differentiate instruction in mathematics. A total of 15 different topics are featured in and the high-interest text is written at four different reading levels with matching visuals. Practice problems are provided to reinforce what is taught in the passage. The included Teacher Resource CD features a modifiable version of each passage in text format and full-color versions of the texts and image files. This resource is correlated to the Common Core State Standards. 144 pp.
The Mathematics of Measurement is a historical survey of the introduction of mathematics to physics and of the branches of mathematics that were developed specifically for handling measurements, including dimensional analysis, error analysis, and the calculus of quantities.
With a focus on measurement, a guide to using leveled texts to differentiate instruction in mathematics offers fifteen different topics with high-interest text written at four different reading levels, accompanied by matching visuals and practice problems.
The expression of uncertainty in measurement poses a challenge since it involves physical, mathematical, and philosophical issues. This problem is intensified by the limitations of the probabilistic approach used by the current standard (the GUM Instrumentation Standard). This text presents an alternative approach. It makes full use of the mathematical theory of evidence to express the uncertainty in measurements. Coverage provides an overview of the current standard, then pinpoints and constructively resolves its limitations. Numerous examples throughout help explain the book’s unique approach.
Lockhart’s Mathematician’s Lament outlined how we introduce math to students in the wrong way. Measurement explains how math should be done. With plain English and pictures, he makes complex ideas about shape and motion intuitive and graspable, and offers a solution to math phobia by introducing us to math as an artful way of thinking and living.
Excel Maths Early Skills; Second Shapes and Measurement will further your child,,s knowledge of a range of different shapes and give them practice in measuring shapes and pictures in different ways. Book 3 in this series, First Shapes and Measurement, introduced your c hild to these concepts, but this book will develop your child,,s skills in: comparing two or more objects by different features drawing a range of different shapes and objects drawing p ositions (e.g. eon top,,, ein,,, eunder,,) putting events in to the correct order finding paths through mazes The activities in each book are divided into double pages. Each double p age allows your child to practise one particular skills many times so th at the skill is reinforced. This also makes it easier for you, the paren t - you can help your child with one skill at a time. A clear, easy-to-f ollow page design has been developed, with clear explanations to help bo th parents and children.
Don't Just Learn Measurement.Master It! Brimming with fun and educational games and activities, the Magical Math series provides everything you need to know to become a master of mathematics! In each of these books, Lynette Long uses her own unique style to help you truly understand mathematical concepts as you play with everyday objects such as playing cards, dice, coins, and paper and pencil. Inside Measurement Mania, you'll learn to take the mystery out of mea-surement! Once you've mastered the basic forms of measurement--length, volume, weight, temperature, and time--you'll learn how to measure the length of an ant in millimeters, the height of a telephone pole in feet, the volume of a bathtub in ounces, the weight of one spaghetti noodle in grams, and the temperature inside a refrigerator in Celsius.You'll discover how to tell time with a candle, create optical illusions, and measure the tallest tree in your neighborhood without climbing an inch! So why wait? Jump right in and find out how easy it is to become a mathematics master!
A compendium of more than 240 classroom-tested lessons, this essential resource helps teachers build student understanding and skills and understand how children best learn math. In this third edition, Marilyn Burns has completely revised the first section to reflect what she has learned over the years from her classroom experience with students and her professional development experience with teachers. This section has also been expanded to address these important topics: teaching math vocabulary, incorporating writing into math instruction, linking assessment and instruction, and using children's literature to teach key math concepts. In an entirely new section, Marilyn addresses a wide range of questions she has received over the years from elementary and middle school teachers regarding classroom management and instructional issues.
