Measurement Measurement Presentation Transcript

    • Cindy Hamilton
    • Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement.
    • Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements .
    Principles and Standards for School Mathematics National Council of Teachers of Mathematics 2000
    • It provides many applications to everyday life.
    • It can be used to help learn other mathematics.
    • It can be related to other areas of the school curriculum.
    • It engages the students in active learning.
    • Data from DCCAS indicates its an area of weakness for our students.
    Discuss: How can measurement be used to help learn other mathematics? How do you relate measurement to other subjects? Based on yesterday’s activities, what learning styles were addressed?
    • Children must measure frequently, preferably on real problems.
    • Children must develop estimation skills with measurement in order to develop common referents.
    • Children should encounter activity-oriented measurement situations by doing and experimenting rather than passively observing.
    • Instructional planning should emphasize the important ideas of measurement that transfer or work across measurement systems.
    • Comparing Objects
    • Units of measurement (standard and nonstandard)
    • Measurement instruments (make and use)
    • Ballpark estimates
    • Real life applications
    • I. Identify the attribute by comparing objects
    • A. Perceptually
    • B. Directly
    • C. Indirectly through a reference
    • II. Choose a unit
    • A. Nonstandard
    • B. Standard
    • III. Compare the object to the unit
    • IV. Find the number of units
    • A. Counting
    • B. Using instruments
    • C. Using formulas
    • V. Report the number of units
    • Attributes Unit Examples Instruments
    • Length inch, cm ruler
    • Capacity cups, liters measuring cup
    • Weight/Mass pounds, grams scale
    • Area square inches ruler
    • Volume cubic inches graduated cylinder
    • Angle degrees protractor
    • Temperature Celsius degrees thermometer
    • Time minutes, days clock, calendar
