MATHSPLORATION® 2

Connecting Thinking and Mathematics

**POUR UP THE VOLUME **

**Measurement and Reference Frames**

Explore liquids in different containers. How do you measure the volume of irregular objects?

**NUMBERS EVERYWHERE MUSEUM **

**Numeration**

What’s one–to–one correspondence? Mix ingredients and find out how to represent numbers. It’s manipulation time!

**HOW BIG IS A FOOT? **

**Measurement and Reference Frames**

What is a non–standard measure? Find out how long your bed is and how tall you are.

#### THE SHAPE OF THINGS

**Geometry**

Can you use your body to make shapes? Make shapes using shells and beans. How’s the cookie cutter?

#### PATTERNS FOR YOU AND ME

**Patterns, Functions and Algebra**

Create patterns with body movements. What’s going on in the school bus?

**OPERATOR, OPERATOR **

**Operations and Computations**

Discover many ways to reach a sum and assemble numbers in sequence. What happens inside the function machine?

**COLORAMA ATTRIBUTE**

**Patterns, Functions and Algebra**

Develop your attribute recognition skill and use clues to guess object identities. Let’s sift some seeds.

**MEASURE SENSE**

**Measurement and Reference Frames**

Investigate the rocker balance to check your predictions. Does the weight change when ice turns to water?

**GEOMETRIC SEDUCTIONS**

**Geometry**

Delve into Tangrams and create animals from Grandfather Tang’s story. Where’s the line of symmetry on your body?

**THE NUMBER FAMILY & ITS TRICKY TEENS**

**Operations and Computations**

Build boxes using symbols and enhance computation skills playing “Bingo”. We’re having a neighborhood party!

**EATING FRACTIONS**

**Numeration**

How do you share a chocolate cake equally? Play a fraction game using hopping frogs.

#### TAKING MATH TO NEW MEASURES

**Measurement and Reference Frames**

Learn how an inchworm measures things. How far did the car go? It’s beyond all measures.

#### HOLD THE LOAD

**Measurement and Reference Frames**

Can you perform a balancing act? How do objects affect each load? Let’s throw our weight around.

**MATH ON GRAPHS**

**Data and Chance**

Display different ways in which animals move. Let’s create a graph of sums. Viva Venn Diagrams!

**WHAT’S MY RULE?**

**Operations and Computations**

Who lives over on the farm? Identify function rules using in and out of sequence. Let’s work with computations.

**MEASURE UP!**

**Measurement and Reference Frames**

Test out your dividing skills and split a volume of water equally. How much is the displacement?

**TICK TOCK MATH**

**Measurement and Reference Frames**

Explore an hourglass to explore passage of time. What is a clock face and how is it read?

**INVOLVING SOLVING **

**Geometry, Logic and Numeration**

Use coordinate geometry to help Little Bo–Peep find her lost sheep. Find out how much Simple Simon is really paying for the pies.
