The Crow and the Pitcher: Investigating Linear Functions Using a Literature-Based Model Introduce the activity by asking what the students know about Aesop’s Fables. Aesop’s fables are short, fantastical tales written by Aesop, an ancient Greek storyteller. The tales are often characterized by a moral. Read students the fable ”The Crow and Pitcher” from the overhead. Crow and Pitcher Activity Sheet Crow and Pitcher Answer Key Crow and Pitcher Story Overhead Crow and Pitcher Table Overhead After reading the story, tell students that they will conduct an experiment, collect and record data, and use that data to predict the number of pebbles needed to bring the water to drinking level. Organize students into groups of three or four and give each group a graduated cylinder, a container of water, and a bag of marbles (about 10 marbles per group). Fill the cylinder with water to a level of 80 mL.Add marbles, one at a time, to the cylinder.Record the results on the table of values. When students have completed the activity sheet, discuss any surprising discoveries. 1. 2. 3.

Mr Barton Maths Podcast for Maths Teachers on Mr Barton Maths Mr Barton Maths Podcast Back to Top The Mr Barton Maths Podcast: "changing useless time into CPD time" - @MrsG on Twitter On the Mr Barton Maths Podcast I interview guests from the world of education who interest and inspire me. It makes me so happy that many teachers are using these podcasts as CPD, either listening in the car, on long walks and bike rides, or doing the dishes. To subscribe for free to the Mr Barton Maths podcast, so you never miss an episode, just follow these links: iTunes Android RSS feed or just click on an individual episode to listen right away. Often my guests recommend books and research papers for teachers to read. Speaking to the wonderful guests on my podcast also inspired me to write my own book: How I wish I'd taught maths: Lessons learned from research, conversations with experts and 12 years of mistakes. Slice of Advice: What did you learn this year? Dylan Wiliam - the return! Carl Hendrick and Robin Macpherson: What does this look like in the classroom?

We base early preparatory work on patterns and use real-life objects to establish concepts. Before tackling addition and subtraction, children will have already done work with number lines and exercises to ensure they understand place value. Sorting different objects. Making the link between pictorial representations of numbers and abstract numbers. Which number is bigger? A short video to show working out sums using bottle tops. Learning to count in 5s. Children tap the lever to add another set of 10 balls until they reach 100. Counting the corners of different 2D shapes. Using number lines to solve equations. Practice for counting by filling in the missing numbers. For detailed information about the pedagogical approach of onecourse and descriptions of learning units, we encourage you to download our digital handbook.
