|A lesson appropriate for elementary students who have a beginning knowledge of fractions and measuring. Students associate the physical act of measuring a fraction of a given amount of water with the arithmetic operations involved. Each group uses a different method of measuring, and compares/contrasts the associated equations with those produced by other groups, integrating science and mathematics. From the Arithmetic section of a collection of almost 200 single concept lessons by the Science and Mathematics Initiative for Learning Enhancement.|
