Numbers and Measuring, Learning With TOR: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 16.
Vogt, Elaine E., Ed.
This volume is the sixteenth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by second-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of five groups of lessons. 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. This unit begins with a review of ordering concepts and then introduces linear measurement to the nearest half inch, measuring and adding fractional units, and measuring diameters and circumferences. Fourteen lessons are devoted to systems of numeration and place value. The measurement of weight, an introduction to negative numbers, and our monetary system are the subjects of other lesson sequences. (SD)
