(Time to Measure is one of the six chapters in The Wonderful World of Math)
In this chapter the students will practice a variety of different ways to measure. They will use a ruler, measure with time (analog and digital), and use fractional measurements in recipes. Geometry is introduced to the students as they learn to find the perimeter and area of a two dimensional and volume of a three dimensional objects. Perpendicular, parallel and intersecting lines are also explored. Not only will the students learn the various skills but they will then apply these skills to answer practical everyday problems.
The Wonderful World of Math was designed to help teach universal life skills and wherever possible, align with the Essential Elements for Special Education Students as part of the Common Core Standards. The reproducible worksheets and activities that will teach cross-content curriculum, vocabulary, reading, writing, oral skills, abstract thinking in addition to math skills.
The worksheets in each chapter start out by introducing a basic skill and progressing to more complex problems as the students learn and practice each new skill. These new skills are broken down into simple steps that allow the student to grasp each new topic with ease. Additional worksheets are included to allow the students to be able to create their own activities. These activities will help the students to practice applying their new skills to meaningful life situations by using their own community specific resources. This will make the experience even more valuable and meaningful for the student.
