Mathematics for the Elementary School, Unit 18, Mapping.
Muckey, Roy; Luce, Marjory
The Minnesota School Mathematics and Science Teaching (MINNEMAST) Project is characterized by its emphasis on the coordination of mathematics and science in the elementary school curriculum. Units are planned to provide children with activities in which they learn various concepts from both subject areas. Each subject is used to support and reinforce the other where appropriate, with common techniques and concepts being sought and exploited. Content is presented in story fashion. The stories serve to introduce concepts and lead to activities. Imbedded in the pictures that accompany the stories are examples of the concepts presented. This unit provides students with an opportunity to discuss the need for scale drawings and the techniques used in their construction. Students are introduced to the idea that one unit can represent another kind of unit. These ideas are used to build some initial concepts of function and lead into rational numbers via ratios. Worksheets and commentaries to the teacher are provided and additional activities are suggested. (JP)
