A blog about teaching and learning in a maths classroom.
Saturday, 13 June 2009 | Comments
With laptops rolling out shortly and projectors appearing in some classrooms, we should be thinking about collecting digital media for use as stimulus or investigation material. So, the other day when filling up my young daughter’s bottles, I took some pictures.
I used these yesterday with a Year 7 class when we looked at Capacity. These worked for me, obviously cause I have a personal story attached to them – but it’s also likely that some kids in your class will have a younger sibling still drinking from a bottle.
If you want a discussion question, the formula that we use requires 60mL of water for each scoopful of formula, hence the 180mL for 3 scoops.
You can also grab these from Flickr or below as full resolution in a zip file.
