Theorems of Triangles
Show your school spirit while proving theorems about triangles! Your student geometers are charged with coming up with a new design for the school pennant, following specific guidelines. Along the way, they need to prove the theorem that base angles of an isosceles triangle are congruent. Not only is this a learning activity, if you allow time to decorate the pennants, you'll end up with great room or hall decorations.
Discovering the Formula for the Area of a Triangle
Most high schoolers are very familiar with the area of the triangle being equal to 1/2 base times the height. Here, they will develop and test their formula for the area of a triangle when given two adjacent sides and the included angle. After they develop their formula, they will use a dynamic geometry software system, such as Geometer's Sketchpad or GeoGebra to test their conjecture.
Mean, Median, Mode, and Range
What a find! Here is a lesson, designed to meet sixth grade math Common Core standards, that focuses on the calculation of different measures of center for the scores from a penalty shoot-out competition. An independent assessment worksheet is included, as well as a group activity using matching cards. You will find a teacher's guide that even provides narrative and discussion questions for you to use with your class. This resource is truly an all-around winner!
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.
Young scholars make observations about the uses of measurement in their everyday lives. They work with a group to conduct an investigation using standard and non-standard units of measurement and a classmate to demonstrate basic measurement concepts.
Is That Measurement Stuff For Real, Life?
Fifth and sixth graders engage in a series of activities which show them the importance of using different types of measurement strategies. One of the primary goals of the lesson is to show learners that measurement is helpful in many areas of real life. Area and perimeter are two of the measurements which are focused on the most. Some outstanding worksheets are included in this plan.
Taking the Measure of the Universe
Four fabulous activities immerse amateur astronomers into measuring objects that we cannot handle. The experiences are applied to NASA's Space Interferometry Mission, which will take measurements of planets around stars other than our sun. The lesson plan is extremely well-written, containing background information, teacher narrative, materials and procedures for the activities, and mathematical applications. Add this engaging lesson plan to your space science repertoire.
Interpreting Measures of Center
Eighth graders use calculators and a hand out to calculate the mean, median, mode, range, and outliers for three sets of data. They select the measure of center they feel best represents the set of data and justify their choice. Students collect information about their favorite music, research to find more data, and analyze the central tendencies for their music. Students create a graph to represent the data.
Do You Measure Up?
Learners participate in a variety of technology-rich activities with the common goal of strengthening the understanding of measuring angles. They participate in a kinesthetic activity and use both hand-held and virtual protractors.
Fifth graders practice conversions from standard measurements to metric measurements using online games and online conversion tools. They work in teams of three to four to conduct hands-on experiments.
Scientific Measurement Exercise
Students measure irregularly shaped bones, once using a variety of measurement methods and tools, and then again using standard conventions and metric tape measures. They explore firsthand that standardizing data collection makes observations more precise and repeatable.
Measurement: Accuracy and Precision
Accuracy v. precision! A very interesting slideshow for a concept that is important but not always covered. Dart boards and golf greens are shown with many examples of darts and bills that show how results can be either accurate or precise, both or neither. Ways to mathematically determine if experimental results are significant are shown and then your class will look at the different types of measuring equipment and assess how to improve their results and best state their calculations.
Measurement of Volume
Students measure the volume of a clear container using a candle and sand. In this measuring volume lesson plan, students time how long a candle stays lit in a clear glass container. They fill it with sand and find the volume and then use a larger container and time how long a candle stays lit in the larger container. They set up a proportion to find the volume of the larger container. Students measure the volume with sand in the larger container and compare their answers.
Graphing and measurement go hand-in-hand
Third graders explore various measuring tools to gather data. In this measuring and graphing lesson, 3rd graders answer questions based on the measurements they've taken. Students make original graphs from the data and post around the room.
It's All in the Measurements
Study customary measurements with your sixth graders. They will investigate linear and capacity measurements to then measure and convert linear and capacity units. Finally they will work in small groups to conduct experiments. Resources are provided.
Can You Measure Up?
Here is a well-designed lesson on common standards of measurement for your young mathematicians. In it, learners calculate measurements in standard and non-standard units. They make predictions, record data, and construct and design graphs to show their results. Worksheets are embedded in this very complete plan.
Measuring Earth’s Circumference as Eratosthenes
Young scholars read The Librarian Who measured the Earth and simulate the work of Erastosthenes. In this measurement activity, students recognize the way to measure Earth using arcs and angles. Young scholars answer questions about how Erastosthenes found the circumference of Earth.
The Circle's Measure
Listen to the story "Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi" and solve the riddle and to save Sir Cumference from the knights. Your students will love mixing an activity with story and will practice their measuring skills while completing the puzzle to connect Pi to their measurements.
MEASURING THE DENSITY OF WATER
Students perform an experiment to measure the density of tap water vs. salt water.
Statisticians take things to new heights using a set of height measurements. Students use TI-82 or TI-83 calculators to determine extreme values and the median for the data. They also construct a box-and-whisker plot to summarize the height statistics.
