Biersteker, Joseph; And Others
This volume is the twenty-first 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 three 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. The first section of this unit is concerned with angles and their measurement. The unit of measurement used is called a Mag and angles are measured with a special circular protractor. The other sections deal with polygons and polyhedra. (SD)
