The teaching guide, part of a series of four, consists of learning experiences for use at the levels of grades 3 and 4 in mathematics. It focuses on the basic concepts of measurement and developing measurement skills in the early grades. It progresses to the concept of measurement by comparison and to developing basic volume measurement skills. Students examine the use of these skills in the work world. The topics covered include: measuring tools and their relationship to work, using estimation in work situations, using length measurement in work situations, using area measurement in work situations, and applying measurement skills. Each set of learning experiences contains a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-coordinated resource materials include transparency masters and work sheets. (Author/NJ)
