You will love this resource! Using a problem involving a farmer planting pumpkins, third graders create arrays to show the various maps the farmer needs to make to determine the number of pumpkins he'll be planting. The kids get to explore the concept of arrays in a real-life context. Using worksheets, 100s charts, and good problem solving skills, the class will really start to understand how an array represents multiplication.
"What are your personal media habits, and how much time do you spend with different forms of media?" are the guiding questions for an examination of middle schoolers' media use. Learners use the provided worksheets to create a personal Media Use Bar Graph and Media Use Log. The final discussion asks class members to consider the implication of what they have recorded.
Students investigate computer science as they study the semiconductor. In this technology lesson, students create a program in their computer class to build a simulation DLP using Java. Their output matches that of the program, while they explore ways to improve the semiconductor technology.
Elementary schoolers explore prime and composite numbers. They use tiles to create arrays and work with a partner to find as many array combinations as possible from their assigned numbers. Pupils create a t-chart of prime and composite numbers and construct a 100's chart to tell if a number is prime or composite.
Students explore multiplication. In this multiplication problem solving lesson, students view a video clip which demonstrates loading a truck with packages. Students fill in a blank array to represent 1"X 2" and the multiples when increased by 10. Students solve similar problems to figure out how many packages would fit in the truck under different circumstances.
Third graders read and discuss math story problems and analyze if the story is using equal groups or unequal groups. They listen to the book "12 Ways To Get to 11," and simulate the story using beads on a pipe cleaner. Students then create equal groups of beads and draw a picture of equal groups.
Students decide whether or not there is or has even been water on Mars. They analyze temperature and pressure data from the Pathfinder mission to Mars, and then they analyze images of Mars, interpreting the landforms they see and comparing them to landforms on Earth (canyons, guleys, etc.) made from the movement of water.
Students determine the costs and benefits of converting or combining sustainable technology to their schools power production portfolio using software developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. They watch a video, analyze data, and complete various worksheets.
