Connecting Thinking and Mathematics
Develop fluency with number combinations. What’s the difference between bar and pie graphs? Hmm?
Search for “secret” numbers using deductive reasoning. Do you know how to use the “turn around” shortcuts?
Create snowflakes and crystals to understand attributes of polygons. What’s the meaning of “vertex” anyway?
Get immersed in the art of measuring. Investigate the difference between capacity, volume and weight. How far is it?
Can you use counting strategies and shortcuts to refine your subtraction skills? It’s the Fact Family!
ALONG CAME TIME
How does a calendar tell the passage of months in a year? Explore the concept of time. What sign are you?
Construct pyramids to explore the relationship of faces, edges and vertices. Line segments are so much fun!
Investigate fractions and multiples of pattern blocks. Find out what halves, thirds and fourths really mean.
Develop addition skills with games, shopping and number stories. Let’s scrutinize the partial-sums algorithm.
It’s finally time to delve into the unknown quantities in multiplication. Help us summarize the array solutions.
Measurement and Reference Frames
