Geometry and Measurement of the World's Most Famous Structures
Eighth graders conduct Internet research on geometry in our everyday lives. They answer questions about well-known structures, and write a paragraph demonstrating their knowledge of geometric shapes and measurements.
Area, Surface, and Volume
Ninth graders demonstrate application of area, surface, and volume in the world around us by applying formulas to a model of the classroom so they can determine the volume and surface area of the room.
Area, Surface, and Volume
Ninth graders demonstrate application of area, surface, and volume. They apply formulas to a model of the classroom so they can determine the volume and surface area of the classroom.
Students measure an assortment of items using metric measurements. In this measurement lesson, students measure using length, mass, and volume units of measurement. They convert between units. Students learn a mnemonic to assist in remembering metric prefixes.
Introduction to Chemistry
For this introduction to chemistry worksheet, students solve 50 problems and short answer questions on scientific method and unit conversions.
Math in the Wetlands Field Trip
Get your class out in the environment for hands on math activities. For this wetlands lesson, learners transplant native plants, calculate how much soil is needed, and perform math activities based on this experience. They then make predictions based on the data and record it in a chart.
Practicing Telling Time with a Website Applet
Students practice telling time by using an analog clock and its corresponding look in written notation. Using the correct numbers, students examine an analog clock and write the time.
Telling Time Practice
Have your youngsters play on-line with this math activity. They use an on-line activity called "Clockwise" to help them practice telling time. Note: You have to have Java installed to load the computer game.
Statistical Process Control
Students brainstorm items they have that use memory and view Statistical Process Control PowerPoint presentation. They complete Statistical Process Control Simulation/experiment then find the average, range and standard deviation in their results.
Third graders practice telling time. In this clocks lesson, 3rd graders use mini clocks to review counting by fives around the clock face. Students practice reading five minute intervals and adding one number.
Exploring Geometry with Tangrams
Seventh graders study polygons and tangrams. They experiment with various polygons and create their own tangrams. They create a PowerPoint presentation to illustrate and explain polygons, symmetry, area and perimeter.
Learning About Location: Charting the Path of the George W. Elder
Students acquire a working knowledge of the geographical concepts: absolute location, relative location, longitude and latitude. They analyze primary sources that shows the physical and human characteristics of the places along the 1899 Harriman Alaska Expedition's route. Students generate route maps using sequencing skills.
Life in Ancient Mesopotamia
Students reconstruct and make drawings of vessels in the same manner as an archaeologist. In this archaeologist lesson plan, students each get a piece of a broken pot and they have to work together to put it back together. Once it is glued, they have to write a description and measure the pot.
Students create an individual timeline that documents their personal history from the previous year. Working in pairs, they interview each other to gather information about their past experiences and new year's expectations. Students use this information to create their timeline and a personal essay documenting their experiences from the previous year.
NUMB3RS Activity: Where is the Bullet?
Students calculate distance travelled. In this projectile motion lesson, students use a TI-84 graphing calculator to find trajectory of objects. A specific example of the TV show Numb3rs is referenced where a similar problem was solved.
Measure Object Using English and Metric Systems
Students are able to measure various objects using English and metric systems within half of the smallest unit of the measurement device. Students identify units of length, volume, mass and temperature according to International System of Units (SI) within half of the smallest unit of the measurement device. They determine surface area of that object with half of the smallest unit of the measurement device.
Connect Real World Situation to Equations and Inequalities
Middle schoolers explore real word problems and apply equations and equalities to solve. In this patterns, models, and relationship lesson plan, pupils identify patters in tables and graphs and create equations to show data.
Weather: It Works, or Not?
Students discover the techniques meteorologists use to examine the atmosphere. In groups, they build their own weather station and observe the various weather conditions. They identify the types of weather patterns that allow the meteorologists to make forecasts.
Students investigate measurement. For this library lesson plan, students discuss measurement, read Millions to Measure by David Schwartz, and complete a worksheet. Extra related activities are included in the lesson plan that appeals to grades k-8.
Student identify the best way to measure. In this algebra lesson, students measure using different units. They solve real life situations using measurements
