Change and Calculations: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 24.
Adams, Patricia A., Ed.; Nyberg, Luanne, Ed.
This volume is the twenty-fourth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by third-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of four groups of lessons and 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. This unit covers both computational and measurement ideas. In the two sets of lessons on computation, the class simulates a computer in activities designed to promote understanding of addition and subtraction in a place value system. Measurement activities are related to liquid volume, length and time. Two job booklets, one on pouring and the other on balancing as methods of measurement, provide activities for independent work by students. (SD)
