## Chapter 6 Measurement |
Juli K. Dixon | Solution Tree Press | ePub | ||||

In kindergarten through grade 2, topics in measurement are primarily related to linear measurement, time, and money. Contexts related to measurement offer opportunities for students to engage in problem solving in real-world contexts. The initial task in this chapter (see figure 6.1) provides an opportunity for you to engage in problem solving related to linear measurement, time, and money, respectively—each of the primary measurement topics in K–2. Be sure to solve each problem before proceeding. While solving the task, think about how you might use the problems, or modify the problems, with your students. 1. Sergei and Lois each measure the length of the same object. Sergei says the length is 5 units. Lois says the length is 15 units. How can they both be correct? 2. What time is it when the 3. Jackie had 45 cents in her purse, but she has no dimes. What coins could she have in her purse? What process did you use to determine the coins? See All Chapters |

In grades 3–5, topics central to measurement include concepts related to perimeter, area, volume, elapsed time, angles, and conversion within systems. Contexts related to measurement offer opportunities for students to engage in problem solving. The initial task in this chapter (figure 6.1) provides an opportunity for you to engage in problem solving related to measurement. This task involves the use of the geoboard and geoboard dot paper. If you do not have access to a geoboard, the activity can be completed using virtual geoboard manipulatives or the geoboard dot paper provided. Make nine different (simple) polygons, each with an area of four square units. Record them on geoboard dot paper so that each polygon is on its own board.
In order to solve this task, you also need to define |

## Chapter 3 Addition and Subtraction Using Counting Strategies |
Juli K. Dixon | Solution Tree Press | ePub | ||||

This chapter connects your understanding of number concepts and word problem structures with the operations of addition and subtraction using counting strategies. In the following pages, you will consider how to develop understanding of the concepts of addition and subtraction. The addition and subtraction learning progression begins with learners using strategies to solve real-world problems. We then blend the use of these strategies with the learning of facts to develop a deep meaning for fluency. Our initial task for you provides a context for the addition of two two-digit addends (see figure 3.1). Jamila has a total of 28 playing cards in her set. Jocelyn has 37 playing cards in her set. If the girls combine their two sets, how many playing cards would be in the combined set?
What strategies can be used to solve the problem in figure 3.1? Make a list of different ways to solve the problem, and provide a brief description for each strategy. What was the first strategy you considered? Did you begin by using the standard algorithm? Other strategies demonstrate how to make sense of the task in meaningful ways, including the modeling of place value. The use of concrete materials such as base ten blocks can aid in representing the place value connection (see figure 3.2). See All Chapters |
