PMA: Measurement Matters with Mike Chartres Yr 3-7
June 25 @ 8:30 am - July 15 @ 12:30 pm$55 – $88
This workshop focuses on the mathematics of size. The ACM tends to focus on “using units of measurement”, making the assumption that through this students develop a rich understanding of measurement. There is much more to measurement than simply knowing the units of measure, how to calculate with them and use standard measuring tools. This assumption is at the centre of student’s capability with measuring.
Three central questions need exploring; what is being measured, how is it being measured, why is it being measured. Through this learning conversation, you will have the chance to develop your own understanding of the measurable attributes, what it means to think and work with measures, how you can develop this learning through an investigative approach, and get a window into a broad range of resources to help you do this!
