This narrative document describes the progression of Geometric Measurement across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary geometric measurement. Among those are recognizing measurable attributes, comparing, connecting with number, estimating, and differentiating linear measurement from area and volume.

This series of brief videos (1-10 min. each) demonstrates how a three-part lesson in a classroom focused on accountable talk empowers and engages students to learn through collaborative problem solving in a technology-rich environment. While solving a problem involving rates and proportional reasoning students exemplify shared criteria for successful group work. The teacher explains her strategies for planning, grouping, and peer evaluation. Print resources (pdf) include a Viewer's Guide, organizers, and supporting monographs.

This interactive lesson helps students connect time and longitude on a globe. Learners use the time discrepancy between their location and Greenwich, England, and a conversion factor to determine their longitude. Several exercises of varying difficulty and precision are provided. The historic background and vocabulary definitions of this topic are provided.

In this lesson activity students collect data on reaction time using either a ruler dropping experiment or one of four interactive applications that test reaction speed on the computer. Students then determine the median of their trials and graph their results on a scatterplot. The data can then be analyzed for students to determine: "How does my reaction time compare to other students?" A student worksheet is included (pdf format) and links to four reaction time tests are provided.
