Measure it!

This episode shows snapshots of Maths sessions over a few days. Our focus has been on measuring using cm and m and working out the perimeter of a shape or area. I tried to connect the learning with real life maths examples (Creating a playground) to help the learning 'stick' and for the students to see a strong purpose for the learning.

Extended Lesson Plan


This lesson had many parts and it was hard to put them together as they were 'snapshots' of each session. When watching the episode I felt it was disconnected.I found the problem with taking lots of snapshots is that sometimes it takes away from the flow of the lesson. I think I took too much footage from the lesson and it doesn't give a very good whole view of the learning. But it has many parts and ideas that teachers may want to draw from.
