Math lesson for 6th grade on measurement conversions. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
NEW 2.0 version contains 3 lessons, including the original, assembled into modules. Guzinta Math: Measurement Conversions features a Python programming lesson, covering functions written to convert from one measurement to another.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching measurement conversions using ratios and area formulas for parallelograms, triangles, and trapezoids--key concepts in 6th grade. The app includes detailed instructor notes for each guided practice problem, with notes about extending discussion around each worked example and problem.
Instructors and/or students can turn on and use the new canvas feature in the app to write all over the screen--take notes, highlight key terms and ideas, show work, etc.
Guzinta Math: Measurement Conversions includes a module that explicitly addresses measurement conversions as well as two new lessons: (1) one lesson in which students investigate the area of basic shapes, such as rectangles, non-rectangular parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids, and composite shapes, and (2) one lesson in which students use a terrific programming platform, Trinket, to study coding functions that can perform different measurement conversions. New 2.0 version includes all of the original content along with 2 new modules, updated instructor notes, new videos, and more questions to help students learn and practice.
