Curves and Shapes: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 2.
Muckey, Roy; And Others
This volume is the second in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by kindergarten teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of four groups of activities. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. The four activity groups in this unit are concerned with curves, regions, and boundaries. A variety of activities aimed at developing the notions of open and closed, simple and non-simple curves are described. Other activities are related to describing edges of objects as curves and to regions. (SD)
