Constructing Triangles

Use a "linkage strip" to build triangles with different side lengths. When you build a triangle, see if you can deform it into a different triangle while keeping the side lengths the same.

Converting English Mass Units

Practice converting mass from one British unit to another. Use your calculator if you need to.

Converting English Lengths

Practice converting lengths from one British unit to another. Use your calculator if you need to.

Converting English Volumes

Practice converting volume from one British unit to another. Use your calculator if you need to.

Converting Fahrenheit to Celsius

Practice converting temperatures from Fahrenheit to Celsius. Feel free to consult the conversion chart and use your calculator if you need to.

Converting Metric Lengths

Practice converting lengths from one metric unit to another. Use your calculator if you need to.

Converting Metric Lengths into English Lengths

Practice converting metric lengths into British lengths. Feel free to consult the conversion chart and use your calculator if you need to.

Converting Metric Mass Units

Practice converting mass from one metric unit to another. Use your calculator if you need to.

Converting Metric to English Mass

Explore the relationship between the metric and British system. Practice converting metric mass into British mass.

Converting Metric to English Volume

Counting Raisins

Count the number of raisins in seventeen half-ounce boxes of raisins. Then come up with a solution to determine how many raisins are in Brand X's or Brand Y's box of raisins.

Counting Stairs

Build staircases out of square blocks. Look for patterns and come up with a rule or formula to predict the number of blocks in any staircase.

Creating a Line Plot

Watch as a physical stack of coins is added as a series of dots to a line plot.

Cuisenaire Rods

Look at patterns of solids made with Cuisenaire rods. Make a table of the surface area and volume for each term of this sequence and view graphs of your data. Find the rule for the nth term.

Cylinders, Cones, and Spheres

Is there a relationship between the volume of a sphere and the volume of a cylinder of equal diameter and height? What about the volume of the sphere and the cone?

Dealing with Data

Using three sets of data from a second grade class, think of an aspect of the data you would like to focus on and then choose the type of graph (line plot, stem and leaf plot or histogram) that best represents that aspect.

Decorative Boxes

Students need to cover 24 boxes with decorative paper. Observe as they use geometry and measurement to determine the area of one box in order to estimate the total amount of paper needed.

Determining Rotation Symmetry

Explore properties of rotation symmetry. Determine the angle of rotation for different images.

Difference Trains

Build your own difference train with one, two or three difference between blocks. Think about your reasoning as you work.
