## Scaling Our School

• Units of Work
• Number and Algebra
• Level Four

In this unit we look at estimating the length and height of buildings at your school. We then compare these estimates with the actual heights or lengths. Students will then build scale models selecting appropriate scales using ratio to translate the "real" dimensions into the dimensions for the scale model.

## Weighty Problems

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Four

This unit comprises 6 stations which involve the students solving problems which involve applying and interpreting aspects of mass. In addition one of the stations introduces the concepts of net and gross mass. The stations may be taken as whole class activities of they may be set up as activities that groups of students use throughout the week.

## Great Grams

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Two

This unit comprises 5 stations which develop our concept of the "feel" of a gram. The stations may be taken as whole class activities or they may be set up as activities that groups of students use throughout the week.

## Weighing Stations

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Two

In this unit students work at a variety of stations involving practical measuring tasks. Estimation skills and the ability to measure accurately using kilograms and grams are developed.

## Supermarket Shopping

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Three

In this unit we introduce the kilogram as a standard unit of measurement using the context of Supermarket shopping. We develop our understanding of the "feel" of a kilogram by making our own kilogram weights.
