Question Answer The student newspaper runs a weekly question that readers can answer online or by campus mail.
Pencil Box Staining Fourth-graders are faced with the task of finding out how much stain to buy from the hardware store and encounter problems as they work with many mathematical ideas in the context of a real application.
Students work in groups with pencil box pieces, a ruler, calculator, and instruction sheet. Ladybugs First-graders choose ladybugs as a topic for learning. Based on their observations, students make bar graphs and a class chart to record the number of heads, wings, feet and antennas ladybugs have.
They make connections among real objects, diagrams, and numerals. Woodpecker Habitat First- and second-graders apply probability and sampling techniques to their study of the habitat of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker.
Using colored cubes to represent elements in the environment, students simulate factors that might harm or help the birds.
Bubble Gum Contest Third-graders stage a bubble gum blowing contest using sampling to determine the ratio of winners to entrants. They enlarge their sample, collecting data from all the third-graders in their school and use fractions to interpret the data.
Dice Toss Fourth-graders work with statistics, probability, fractions and decimals while conducting an experiment to see which sum comes up most often when rolling two dice. Once the groups complete their experiments, they compile their findings on a class bar graph and analyze the graph.
Questioning Data A fourth- through sixth-grade class takes data collected from surveys on questions of personal interest. They then represent the data in a graph, and write about what the graph interprets and the questions they still have about the survey subject.
Fraction Strips First- and second-graders make fraction pieces from paper strips and play a game that involves covering a whole strip with fractional pieces. As they play they informally add fractions and make connections from objects and actions to symbols.
Arrays and Fractions A first- through third-grade class investigates fractional parts of a set by building arrays that represent wholes of different sizes.
In their task they use mathematical language and symbols and form mathematical connections among concepts of addition, area, multiplications, division, and fractions. Everyday Decimals Second- and third-graders extend their understanding of common fractions to notation for decimal fractions and to the numeration system.
They interpret the use of decimals in the real world by bringing to class items that have decimals or fractions written on them. Cookies To Share Through a story about sharing cookies, fourth-graders investigate a the problem of dividing eight cookies among 12 children.
It helps them develop meaning for the concept of division and leads to the use of fractions. Fractions With Geoboards Fourth- and fifth-graders investigate the concept of halves using the geoboard as an area model. They learn that one-half means two equal-sized parts with equal areas, but that are not necessarily congurent.
People Patterns One of several lessons on patterns, individual kindergarteners are lined up to represent different patterns to the class.
In groups they create their own patterns from simple two-element patterns or more complex six-element patterns to share with the class.
All Sorts of Buttons Kindergarteners and first-graders hear a story about buttons, then sort their own collection of buttons to develop skills of classification--observing likenesses and differences. Students see that objects can be looked at in a number of ways and develop a sense of pattern and regularity.
Story-Based Centers Second-graders work at learning centers around their classroom that are based on the story "Caps for Sale.National Library of Medicine’s database of health information. Includes information on over health topics, drugs and supplements, medical encyclopedia, . ASU Library is home to eight university libraries, providing students and scholars access to millions of information resources, quiet study and collaborative research spaces, world-class collections and a suite of learning and research support services.
