- Metric Equivalents (Tresino)
- Students use a shortcut method to change one metric unit to another (ex: kilometers to centimeters), through a diagram that supplies words that are easy to remember.
- Data Sets (Daley)
- Data sets that can be downloaded as ClarisWorks spreadsheets by simply clicking on the desired title. The downloaded lists can then be sorted, manipulated, and graphed on your computer in the same way that any Clarisworks spreadsheet is manipulated.
- How Do You Measure Up? (Hedge, Carlton)
