# Measurements with Fractions: Reading 8ths and 16th of an Inch

(View Complete Item Description)

This lesson helps to build procedural skill with identifying unit fractions on a number line (and ruler). The partitioning of number lines and rulers is used here to introduce the idea that fractional lengths are invariant. This work develops students' understanding that a length does not change if its position on a number line or ruler changes.

# Grade 3 Mathematics Module 5: Fractions as Numbers on the Number Line

(View Complete Item Description)

In this 35-day Grade 3 module, students extend and deepen second grade practice with "equal shares" to understanding fractions as equal partitions of a whole. Their knowledge becomes more formal as they work with area models and the number line. Find the rest of the EngageNY Mathematics resources at https://archive.org/details/engageny-mathematics.

# Introduction to Angles

(View Complete Item Description)

The lesson starts with a review of basic geometric terms.Angles are defined.There are four types of angles.A right angle measures 90° and forms a square corner. If you were to sit inside a right angle, you would be sitting straight up.An acute angle measures less than 90° and is open less than a right angle. Acute angles have a smaller measurement. Think of them as small and cute. =) If you were sitting inside an acute angle, you would be bent together like a 'V'.An obtuse angle measures more than 90° and is open more than a right angle. Obtuse angles have a larger measurement. If you were to sit inside a obtuse angle, you would be leaning back as if you were lounging in a beach chair by the pool.A straight angle measures exactly 180° and forms a straight line. If you were to sit inside a straight angle, you would actually have to lay down flat on your back.

# The Big Green Monster Teaches Phonics in Reading and Writing

(View Complete Item Description)

Go Away, Big Green Monster! Ed Emberley's tale about a scary, multicolored monster is used to help students build their reading fluency and word recognition skills. In this lesson, students chorally read the story and then point out familiar color words or sight words that appear in the story. After finishing the story, students are introduced to four different literacy center activities that include participating in a read along, building word families with story words, playing a memory game with color words from the story, and retelling story events using sentence strips. In the sessions that follow, students create their own artwork of the big green monster and use that artwork to help them write a story. Students use both self- and peer-editing to improve their writing. Completed stories are either published on the Internet or in a class book.

# Energy Forms and Changes

(View Complete Item Description)

This simulation lets learners explore how heating and cooling adds or removes energy. Use a slider to heat blocks of iron or brick to see the energy flow. Next, build your own system to convert mechanical, light, or chemical energy into electrical or thermal energy. (Learners can choose sunlight, steam, flowing water, or mechanical energy to power their systems.) The simulation allows students to visualize energy transformation and describe how energy flows in various systems. Through examples from everyday life, it also bolsters understanding of conservation of energy. This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET).
