This assortment of mathematical activities (pdf) can be played as a family while traveling and can help improve a child's number sense, cultivate curiosity, and promote problem solving. This resource take advantage of the real world of travel to explore math concepts including: measuring distance and time, recognizing shape and color and working with numbers. This is an excerpt from "Family Math II: Achieving Success in Mathematics."

This Flash applet includes a working analog clock face displaying the current time, and stating the time in text, which optionally may be spoken. Clicking on the right or left sides of the face displays the number of minutes "past" or "to" the hour, respectively. A smaller clock on the right can be set to any time specified by the user.

This professional development video clip presents students engaged in The Common Core Practice Standard #1—Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. The learners gather data for a bubble gum contest, as part of a larger activity involving recording data and writing up results. Students understand the problem and persevere with the task as they independently go to other classrooms to conduct their survey. Additional resources include a video transcript, teaching tips, and a link to a professional development reflection activity based upon the video.

This interactive game gives students practice in comparing digital and analog clock times to the nearest minute. They are presented with five displays of each and must drag each digital time to the matching analog clock. They are given feedback and encouraged to improve their time in doing the task. Please note: precision levels 1, 2, 3, and 5 (cataloged separately) are available at Oswego Interactive Games (see related resources).

This standards-based unit has been created for use by students in the elementary grades to investigate weather phenomena both locally as well as in other places around the world. By using hands-on activities and real-time data investigations, students develop a basic understanding of how weather can be described in measurable quantities. The lesson plans have been designed to allow teachers to select the ones which fit into their curriculum, and to allow for flexibility in implementation.
