Title: New School Brochure PBL
Description:
This is a projectbased learning unit plan that requires students to create a brochure of their school after surveying the school layout, gathering data, and calculating time and distance required to travel across the campus.
Standard(s): [IL] (012) 3: The student who is information literate uses information accurately and creatively. [IL] (012) 5: The student who is an independent learner is information literate and appreciates literature and other creative expressions of information. [TC2] (35) 9: Use technology tools to organize, interpret, and display data. [TC2] (35) 12: Create a product using digital tools. [MA2013] (3) 16: Tell and write time to the nearest minute, and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram. [3MD1] [MA2013] (3) 19: Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units — whole numbers, halves, or quarters. [3MD4] [MA2013] (3) 20: Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures, and understand concepts of area measurement. [3MD5] [MA2013] (3) 23: Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters. [3MD8] [MA2013] (4) 19: Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units, including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz; l, ml; and hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a twocolumn table. [4MD1] [MA2013] (4) 20: Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale. [4MD2]

Title: Area Explorer
Description:
This activity allows the user to test his or her skill at calculating the area of a random shape. The user is given a random figure and allowed to enter a value for the area. The user is informed whether or not the answer is correct. The user may continue trying until the answer is correct. As an extension, the students may link to a chart that compares the area to the perimeter.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (3) 20: Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures, and understand concepts of area measurement. [3MD5] [MA2013] (3) 21: Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units). [3MD6] [MA2013] (3) 23: Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters. [3MD8]

Standard(s): [MA2013] (3) 20: Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures, and understand concepts of area measurement. [3MD5] [MA2013] (3) 21: Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units). [3MD6] [MA2013] (3) 22: Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition. [3MD7] [MA2013] (3) 23: Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters. [3MD8] [MA2013] (4) 21: Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in realworld and mathematical problems. [4MD3]

Title: ABC Teach  Measurement
Description:
These "Everyday Measurements" worksheets give students an opportunity to measure everyday objects and/or complete perimeter.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (3) 17: Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). (Excludes compound units such as cm^{3} and finding the geometric volume of a container.) Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve onestep word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem. (Excludes multiplicative comparison problems (problems involving notions of "times as much").) (See Appendix A, Table 2.) [3MD2] [MA2013] (3) 20: Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures, and understand concepts of area measurement. [3MD5] [MA2013] (3) 23: Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.

[4MD1] [MA2013] (4) 21: Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in realworld and mathematical problems. [4MD3] [MA2013] (4) 24: Measure angles in wholenumber degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure. [4MD6] [MA2013] (5) 18: Convert among differentsized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multistep, realworld problems. [5MD1] [MA2013] (5) 21: Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units. [5MD4]
