- So that I can know how to dress appropriately for the day, or plan what to pack for a beach or ski trip
- So I know that I can find out if we can go outside for recess by reading the thermometer
- So that I can understand the necessity of knowing what the temperature means and how it affects my life
UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD
- The symbols for degrees in Fahrenheit (°F) should be used to write temperatures.
- Fahrenheit temperatures should be related
to everyday occurrences by measuring the temperature of things found in the
student’s environment (e.g., temperature of the classroom; temperature on the
playground; temperature of warm and cold liquids; body temperature).
- Estimating and measuring temperatures in
the environment requires the use of real thermometers.
- A variety
of physical models (e.g., circular, linear) should be used to represent the
temperature determined by a real thermometer.
- A physical or pictorial model can be used
to represent the temperature measured using a real thermometer.
Reading temperature in degrees Celsius will begin in grade three.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
- Identify different types of thermometers as
instruments used to measure temperature.
- Read temperature in Fahrenheit to the
nearest ten degrees on thermometers (real world, physical model, and
