  • Softcover

This module focuses on measurement skills: relating the passage of time to minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years; and estimating and measuring length and perimeter in centimetres and metres, and mass in grams and kilograms. Geometry concepts emphasize describing 3-D objects by the shape of their faces and the number of vertices and edges, and sorting regular and irregular polygons (triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, octagons) according to the number of sides.

Also included:

  • materials lists
  • activity descriptions
  • questioning techniques
  • problem-solving examples
  • activity centre and extension ideas
  • assessment suggestions
  • activity sheets and visuals

All modules include a list of children’s books and websites related to the mathematics topics introduced, a detailed introduction to the Hands-On Mathematics program (guiding principles, implementation guidelines, an overview of the skills that students use and develop during mathematics inquiry), and a classroom assessment plan and record-keeping templates.
