New! Represent Quantities of Time by Using Diagrams
Learn how to represent quantities of time using measurement scales in a diagram. Emphasizing essential concepts of time, the lesson covers the colloquial terms quarter after, half past, and quarter till and their corresponding times, as well as reviewing the number of minutes in an hour. A complex word problem is then presented. Starting by using a diagram to organize the pertinent information, learners are led carefully through solving the problem in more than one way.
Help your kindergartners develop counting skills using a 24 oz. plastic cup, counting manipulatives, and a paper plate. Start with a small group of learners and place a quantity of counting objects between the range of 5 to 10 into each plastic cup. With the group, count each quantity. Next, have each class member select and place counters on their paper plate. Working one-on-one guide each pupil to count their amount off the plate and on. Finally, using a booklet of blank paper, have each class member draw his counters and write the number. This activity can be practiced again and again and can be mixed up by using different counters and number quantities.
More and Less Handfuls
Working as a pair, two kindergartners will sit at a table and will pick two handfuls of counters. They will combine their individual handfuls into one, and count their own selection. They will then draw and record their count on a record worksheet (not provided but see the set-up section on the lesson plan for details on how to create). Next, they will compare their count to their partner's and record whether their amount is greater than, less than, or equal to their partner's amount. If picking two handfuls is too much, modify by having the pair pick only one handful. Having a number line handy will also help learners see the quantity difference with more ease. This may be hard for your learners at first, but with practice it will become a great activity to enforce the skills of counting, comparing, and writing numbers.
New! Represent Quantities of Money by Using Diagrams
This is the fourth of five videos focusing on representing measurement quantities with diagrams. The parts of a fraction are reviewed, including numerators, denominators, and divisors. The lesson then walks through how two different students solved the same problem using different types of diagrams, discussing the strategies they used to read and understand the problem, as well as the steps they took to solve the problem.
Unit 2 Quantities Review
In this quantities in chemistry worksheet, students solve 13 review problems about percent composition, significant digits, the mole, simple and molecular formulas, balancing equations, stoichiometry, limiting reagents and percent yields.
Finding Equal Groups
Build counting fluency in your kindergartners with this counting and grouping timed learning game. Provide various groups of objects to count such as a clear plastic bag filled with 7 beans or a cup with 5 pennies. There are many other examples included in the lesson which are easy to find in a kindergarten classroom. Using an egg timer, have a small group of class members sort the groups of objects by quantity. This game can be used during a math center without teacher supervision, but will need to be explained and modeled beforehand. Learners should be instructed to count the objects in groups and to not remove them from their container. A simple and fun learning game that will be a class favorite in no time.
Introduction to Ratios (new HD version)
Sal defines ratios. Then he shows how to write ratios three different ways. This concept is then demonstrated with four examples for finding quantities by using ratios.
Biggest Number Wins
Engage your mathematicians with this simple number-quantity game. Working in pairs, using two decks of 44 cards numbered 0-10 with corresponding sets of objects or images, young learners will each flip a card and decide which number is greater. The one with the greater number then keeps both cards. If both cards are the same, each game member will draw two more cards and find the greater number, and all the cards will then go to the larger number drawer. The gamer with the most cards in the end wins. Repetition is key. This is a great game for a math center, and if you do not have sets of cards like this, you or a parent volunteer can make them.
Dan’s Division Strategy
Can Dan make a conjecture about dividing fractions with the same denominators? That is what your scholars are to determine. They must show that if the statement is true, they understand how the quantities were determined, and how the operations were applied. Ask your class to come up with visual fraction models or to create a story context as suggested in the commentary. The objective is for learners to practice constructing a viable argument.
QUALITY OR QUANTITY
Students share opinions about the criteria they consider important in an online search engine. Using Google and Yahoo, they investigate various subjects and compare their search results. To synthesize their findings, students prepare recommendations.
For/Since: indicating a quantity of time vs. a specific time
In this for or since worksheet, students fill in for or since for sentences about quantity of time and also fill in expressions after the words for or since. Students complete 15 sentences.
How Much Are We Using?
Third graders investigate environmental stability through consumption and recycling. They look into how much of a recyclable good it takes to create one new product. Pupils compile a list of these quantities, then create posters that are hung up around the school sharing their important findings. This brilliantly written plan is well worth implementing with your 3rd graders. The sooner our young people turn on to recycling, the better.
Something Fishy - Bioaccumulation of Mercury
High schoolers explore the dangers of eating high levels of mercury and how small amounts of mercury in water accumulate in greater quantities in organisms higher in the food chain. They list the health of effects of high levels of mercury on humans.
Circles and Cylinders
In this circles and cylinders worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 22 various types of problems. First, they collect data for a radius and circumference for several different circles and calculate the quantity. Then, students find the length of the radius and use the Pythagoras' Theorem on the given triangle.
Amount, Quantity, Number
In this English grammar learning exercise, students understand the differences between the usage of the phrases "amount of," quantity of," and "number of." Students read the definition of each and the given examples before taking the online interactive exam.
Whose Water is It?
Students study water quality and water quantity issues in their community. They will examine state water laws, learn about current issues relating to water use and water scarcity in their region and the state, investigate and role play different water users and water interest groups, and create a regional water plan.
Investigating Maximizing Profits
Young scholars investigate the maximization of profit in business. In this Economics lesson, students examine revenue and cost to calculate profit and investigate what productions quantity gives the company maximum profit.
Quandaries, Quagmires, and Quadrilaterals
Students classify, flip, slide, and turn a quantity of quadrilaterals.
Welcome to the café! Introduce beginning French speakers to food-related vocabulary and using the conditional tense to place an order. This plan gets your kids up and moving. They look at French menus, identify quantity expressions (like de la and du), and then play a game using their new vocabulary words. There's also a fun role-play activity that has learners step into the place of a presenter on a TV cooking show.
M&Ms Count and Crunch
Students practice skills involving statistics and probability by making predictions on number of each color candy in one pound bag of M&Ms. They record both guesses and actual quantities, calculate percentages, and create bar graphs to represent their data. Students then determine weight and diameter of single candy, and calculate probability of assigned situations.
