Summer SAVY Session 5, Day 3, Dive Into Design
We were staying safe from the weather and students were being flexible as our classroom was relocated a couple of times. Students worked on their pool plans and measuring in nonstandard units of length.
Lesson 6: the length of an object can be divided into equal-sized units (partitioning) and the length of a larger unit may be made up of repeating smaller units (iteration)
Lesson 7: the length of an object can be divided into equal-sized units (partitioning), sets of items may look different, but represent the same amount of equivalence, and sometimes a close approximation of a number is accurate enough (rounding).
Lesson 8: accurate measurements require identical units, precise starting and ending points, no gaps, or overlaps in coverage, and partitioning of left-over (non-whole) units (measurement accuracy)
