Product Description
We measure every day. This is done by filling, covering, matching, and using instruments such as rulers and scales. It's painfully obvious that many of our students do not know how to select and use appropriate units, tools and technology for measuring in math. At first, primary students have to learn to measure concretely. This gives them an opportunity to work with abstract mathematical quantities and communicate math ideas in their everyday language. After children deeply understand concrete experiences, they are ready for further investigations and pictorial stage. Measurement covers everything from occupational skills and tasks to life skills. We also estimate measures in daily life. This is a very difficult concept for young children. Estimation means we focus on the "about" of quantities. Using words like closer to, more or less than, and about in daily activities helps to build foundations for what is a reasonable range of answers. Research by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2000) shows that teachers need to: -Help students understand that objects have measurable properties. -Help students understand expressions referring to properties (i.e. "How long?" and "How heavy?"). -Help students understand and use terms of comparison (longer, heavier, shorter, and wider). -Help students use appropriate units and processes for measurement. -Help students use standard units of measurement. -Help students create and use formulas to help count units. Measuring Tools and Data such as Length, Volume, Time, Money, Weight and Temperature are necessary for practice and master mathematical and measurement skills. Great for math stations, intervention groups or individual work.
