Australian Math in Nature: Measurement


Who thought math could be fun? I’m convinced that the Math in Nature: Measurement guide will encourage you to look at this intimidating subject with renewed confidence.

This math guide takes a glimpse at measurement history and examines the tools used for measurement then and now with ancient and modern tool cards. Create a beautiful shell box to give away while exploring length, width and height. Compare the length of whales, investigate distance on maps, discover the depth of the ocean, learn to read tide times, estimate the height of waves, categorise shells and make a graph to share the data. Then complete the study with a master construction piece while reflecting on the 5 principles of math.
