Exploring Math

Storyboard Text

  • I sure am thirsty. I wonder if we have lemonade in the refrigerator.
  • The television looks like a rectangle
  • The windows are squares, too. They can also be in the form of other shapes.
  • The rug is a square
  • Halloween is this weekend & I can't wait. The pumpkin we have for decoration is also a circle.
  • Hi there! Welcome to my house where we will explore many ways in which we use math every day, outside of the classroom. Take a look for yourself - math is all around us!
  • We will start in the kitchen. Imagine that you are incredibly thirsty - a glass of lemonade sure would be refreshing, but you want to keep a record of how many ounces of fluid you are drinking each day. You are aware that 8 ounces equals 1 cup, so you decide to have a parent or guardian assist you with pouring a glass after you've acknowledged your measurements are correct. Delicious!
  • Money Bank
  • There are shapes in any and every location, but let's just take a look into the living room to see if we can identify a few. Remember to look for circles, squares, rectangles... You might even see a triangle or two!
  • Now we will take a look into the bedroom closet. I like to organize my clothes by similar colors. This is a great way, and one of many, to practice sorting. We can also practice telling time by keeping a close eye on the clock, located on top of the dresser.
  • Some kids (and even adults) keep a money bank, or piggy bank, in their room or other secret location. I would like to trade the 2 dimes and 1 nickel I have in my pocket for 1 quarter from my money bank - both equal to 25¢. Can you help?
  • Thank you all for taking a peak at the many ways I use math in my own home. I hope you are inspired to go find many more in your own, as well. Goodbye!
