Error In Measurement Avenue

Error In Measurement Avenue

This is a set of questions finding upper and lower bounds using a technique given to me by a colleague in calling the number you are finding the bounds for a house and working out where the fences are. I have found this technique really popular with children and better than anything I was doing before. I hope you like it too.

An Inquiry Based Maths Project with Measure, Fractions & Data Analysis

An Inquiry Based Maths Project with Measure, Fractions & Data Analysis

Help the chickens escape a life of drudgery with this week long inquiry based math project focusing on animal rights. It offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge of measure, area, data analysis, fractions, ratio tables and word problems as they help: Chickens to escape a factory farm with the help of the fastest farm animals Plan and design a chicken farm, chicken coop and run using measure and fractions Research, compare and contrast data of wingspans, analyse data and record their data Build model wings based on measure and research Calculate the amount of food necessary for their chicken farm And much more! Informational text is included that the children will have to identify and use in order to solve the problems. Research will be necessary as the children have to know the various wingspans of certain birds and compare them with chickens. UK & USA spelling included. It culminates in a class presentation of the facts found ,reasoning as to their plan and design of their team’s escape and new chicken coop and run. Comparing and contrasting each group’s work, helps with critical thinking too and communication skills. Wholly differentiated, ( Task B cards are less challenging) you can use it as a summative assessment tool of the skills and standards included. It can be created as a booklet or in a binder, with a front cover included, being used as a goal setting pre assessment for the children. Mix and match the pages to suit your students’ needs. I prefer to have the children work on the design pages individually before they compare their designs within a small group and work together to collaboratively create their group plan of the chicken coop & run and the great escape! This inquiry based math packet is easy to print and go, perfect for an IB PYP Sharing the Planet theme and thoroughly encourages student agency throughout. I designed it for my IB PYP 4th grade class. It can be used 3rd – 5th grade too. You will find the following skills and standards ideally suited for the IB PYP Phases 3 & 4 and CCSS Math for 4th and 5th grade: Number sense and base ten operations Fractions: adding Measure: using measuring tools , area & perimeter Geometry: identifying polygons and angles Data analysis Make math fun, engaging and authentic! You can find many more inquiry based math projects in my store and on my blog. Enjoy! Susan Powers PYPteachingtools.com

Goal Mouth Number Line

Goal Mouth Number Line

Not a wonderful resource but some may find a use for it. Write two numbers in the circles and see if they can score a goal by identifying anything between those numbers. I used it for fractions but don’t forget decimals and negatives.

Fantasy Roleplaying (6-8 Hours)

Fantasy Roleplaying (6-8 Hours)

Personally, I’m a big fan of role-playing games and miniature games so I decided to incorporate some of those elements into a unit of work I’ve done with my low-ability English group around Fantasy Fiction. This will allow students to create their own character and then go on their own adventure as a group working together to complete a quest and defeat stereotypical fantasy enemies. The story and enemies are lead and controlled by the class teacher, and this best works with smaller groups of around 4-6 students. The lessons focus on: Problem solving skills Addition & subtraction Dice probability Team-working skills Role-playing Setting description and visualization Creative writing If you are familiar with how Dungeons & Dragons works then this should all be very familiar with you. There is also a free campaigned provided which is already readily available for free elsewhere (ignore the statistics and number in it, I just used it purely for the story element), you are also free to write your own campaign. All you need to get your hands on are some 6 and 20-sided dice. There are also many places on the internet already where you can simulate this dice rolls. Enjoy, we had a right laugh doing this and then were really engaged!

Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order 😃 My favourite use of loop cards is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins). More instructions are included in the download.

Year 4 - Roman Numerals - Shanghai Mastery Lesson Sequence

Year 4 - Roman Numerals - Shanghai Mastery Lesson Sequence

This resource can be used as a full sequence of lessons to enable children to read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C) . There are detailed animated powerpoints allowign for conceptual understanding with activities that provide procedural fluency and follow the principles of variation. The expectation is that after guidance, modelling and questioning using the various slides, all children will complete the same activities. Let children complete 1 question, then mark together and reflect/explain and then move onto subsequent slides before going back to worksheets. Examples of the shanghai mastery approach can be found online.

Each cell on the board can be won by finding the two numbers that add or subtract to give the number contained within that cell. One player/team is trying to create a path from top to bottom while the other player/team are attempting to create a path from right to left. The winner is the player/team to complete their path (a draw is impossible). Start with the toss of a coin and then teams take alternating goes - spice it up by adding a timer !

Measurement  Problem Solving KS2 Romans

Measurement Problem Solving KS2 Romans

This activity combined our History topic of Romans, with our Maths focus of measurement, plus a little bit of shapes and fractions thrown as an assessment of the previous units taught. Students receive a letter from Emperor Hadrian, with the command to rebuild sections of Hadrian`s Wall. They then worked in differientiated groups for calculate the correct measurements for the wall. Once the correct measurements had been calculated they then used their knowledge of 3-D shapes to build the wall. I have included the activity and instructions in pdf and word format for editing. My class loved it, but I have to be honest - it took them all morning! Learning Objectives covered: Geometry: Property of Shapes: • Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials. Measurement: • Measure, compare, and add lengths (m/cm/mm) • Continue to measure using the appropriate tools and units, progressing to using a wider range of measures, including comparing and using mixed units and simple equivalents of mixed units (for example, 5m = 500cm). Fractions: • Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects. • Recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10
