Project M2: Mentoring Young Mathematicians; Grades K-2

Grade Levels: Elementary

PROGRAM FEATURES

PROGRAM FEATURES


In Kindergarten, frogonauts Fonzie and Freeda involve kindergarten students in investigations, Space Labs, and choice centers as they explore shapes and develop the geometry concepts involved in identifying and describing 2- and 3-dimensional shapes, composing and decomposing shapes, spatial orientation, and visualization. They will also work with Freeda and Fonzie to help them make decisions throughout the measurement unit as they learn beginning measurement concepts and processes associated with the attributes of length, area, capacity, and volume.

In first grade, students are introduced to Imi and Zani, a macaw and toucan from the Amazon rain forest who help students learn about two-dimensional shapes and develop an understanding of the properties of shapes, the relationships among shapes, symmetry, and congruence. Imi and Zani also help students come to understand the concepts of measurement and the skills involved in the measurement process as they prepare a School Measurement Fair.

Students meet meerkats Dru and Teller in second grade, who work with students to create a Shape Gallery for the Sensational Math Institute for Learning and Exploration (SMILE), the meerkats’ children’s museum. Students advance their geometric thinking through continued work with shapes and their properties and develop their mathematical communication skills through communication with the meerkats. Dru and Teller also help students explore the measurement concepts of length, area, and capacity.
