Explorations with Raisins.
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v6 n2 p135-48 Aug 1987
What are often missing for children in classroom instruction are experiences with numbers that stretch beyond computation skills and word problems. This lesson models such an experience for third graders. Students use small boxes of raisins in several problem-solving activities. Children apply whole number operations, estimate, consider statistical ideas, use measurements of volume and weight, and make proportional reasoning. (RH)
