In this math lesson, learners apply the concepts of ratio and proportion to determine the length of the Statue of Liberty's torch-bearing arm.
Learners use M&Ms® (or any other multi-color, equally-sized small candy or pieces) to create a pie graph that expresses the composition of air.
In this three/four-day lesson, learners calculate perimeters and areas and draw the castle plan to scale.
In this activity, learners build a 1:140 "scale model" of NASA's X-33 Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) Technology Demonstrator, and investigate how the model dimensions compare to the real vehicle.
In this activity, learners use measurement concepts to make models of what their body parts might look like if they were a snake or a chameleon.
In this Cyberchase activity, learners use math to explore how parts of the body are proportional.
In this activity, learners will predict the size of a giant scale model of a comb or other rectangular object, then make one. If you tripled the size of a dollar bill, could you sit on it?
This activity puts a mathematical twist on the familiar “guessing jar.” No guesses allowed, estimates only.
In this activity, learners make or use pre-made clay beams to scale and proportion. Specifically, they discover that when you scale up proportionally (i.e.
In this activity, learners discover the importance of maps and scale as they work together to create a map of the classroom.
Learners develop awareness and understanding of the daily air quality using the Air Quality Index (AQI) listed in the newspaper or online.
This is an activity about music, movement, and math. Learners will start a rhythm pattern with 2, 3, or 4 beats. For instance, tap your foot, jump, clap, repeat.
Choose a recipe to double (or triple, quadruple, or halve). Show everyone the recipe and engage them in figuring out: How much will we need to increase the recipe to feed everyone?
This game teaches ratio and proportion by having learners make "salads" that combine three types of beans in different combinations.
In this math lesson, learners apply the concepts of ratio and proportion to the capture-recapture statistical procedure.
