  • Transcript of "Measurement"

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