3.10 - Temperature
The student will
- read temperature to the nearest degree.
So that I can plan appropriate outdoor activities
- So that I will know what kind of clothes to wear
UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD
- Estimating and measuring temperatures in the
environment in Fahrenheit and Celsius require the use of real thermometers.
- A variety of physical models (e.g.,
circular and linear) should be used to represent the temperature determined by
a real thermometer.
- The symbols for degrees in Celsius (°C)
and degrees in Fahrenheit (°F) should be used to write temperatures.
- Celsius and Fahrenheit temperatures should
be related to everyday occurrences by measuring things found in the student’s
environment (e.g., the temperature of the classroom; temperature on the
playground; temperature of warm and cold liquids; body temperature).
this level, scale increments should be limited to one or two.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
Celsius and Fahrenheit temperatures to the nearest degree using real
thermometers, physical models, or pictorial representations.
