Symmetry is everywhere, but it's often hard to notice. This lesson explores a few ways to identify it. By folding and making mirror images for different shapes, students will discover a new world of symmetrical figures.
Students will learn to convert metric units by applying concepts in word problems. Exercises and worksheets incorporate length (meters), and optional practice offers more instructions on mass (grams) and volume (liters).
Fractions are everywhere! In this hands-on lesson, your class will work together in groups to find real-world examples of fractions. As they discover more complicated fractions, students will create their own word problems with them.
Perpendicular, intersect, parallel! In this lesson, students work in teams to complete a Frayer Model on each of these terms to become masters of geometry vocabulary. Teach this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson What's My Line?
In this lesson, students engage in interesting hands-on activities that help them discover the properties of parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines. Your little mathematicians will have a blast as they learn about geometry.
Your students will become junior math detectives as they hunt down the missing side of a rectangle by applying the area formula for rectangles. The only clues they have are the rectangle's area and the measure of one side.
