Measuring for an Exact Fit

Icon:

In this Cyberchase video segment, Matt and Jackie must figure out how to construct rectangular lids that match the size of two boxes precisely. They enlist the carpentry skills of one of the Three Little Pigs, who shows them how to use different tools to accurately measure the rectangular lids. For the first box, Jackie finds that she can easily trace the box to make a lid that fits perfectly. The second box cannot be traced, so Matt and Jackie decide to measure the sides of the box and then use the measurements to cut a rectangle of equal size out of a piece of Herculanium.

Lifting with Levers

Icon:

In this video segment from Cyberchase, Jackie, Matt, and Inez try to move a stack of slabs blocking a doorway. They decide to use a long board as a lever, but they soon realize they need a longer board in order to move the heavy slabs. The problem is that they are not sure exactly how long the lever should be. Since they do not have the time to try out levers of varying lengths, Inez decides to construct a scale model. While testing their model levers, they learn about the relationship between the length of a lever and its lifting capability.

Is It Square?

Do an Hour of Code | Tynker

Icon:

Build the computer literacy and problem solving skills students need to become innovators of the future.

Introduce students to computer programming, or take their coding skills to the next level as they engage in fun activities and projects that enhance STEM learning outcomes. With an Hour of Code with Tynker, teachers can easily introduce the basics of computer programming in a fun and intuitive way.  Start with any of the six adventure puzzles, then students can apply what they’ve learned to create fun projects to share with others – multi-level and multi-player games, math patterns, interactive comics and greeting cards.

No programming experience is required.  Use the resources provided to quickly plan a successful Hour of Code for your class. Students can access Candy Quest and Dragon Dash puzzles from this site.  The rest of the activities, plus a teacher's guide and answer keys, can be found at hourofcode.tynker.com.

Building a Fence

Icon:

In this Cyberchase video segment, Harley convinces Harry to help put up a fence in their grandmother's backyard. With no instructions other than to put up the fence in the shape of a rectangle, Harry must figure out how to do this with different lengths of fencing. He breaks the problem down by adding up different combinations of pieces and then drawing a diagram to figure out where to place the pieces.
