Resources - Measuring

 

Measuring cylinder is an interactive teaching program (ITP) which allows you to control two taps that pour a liquid in and out of a measuring cylinder. You can set the scale on the cylinder to a maximum of 50, 100, 200, 500 or 1000 units and the scale interval to 1, 2, 5 or 10 units. You can simply turn the taps on and off and ask questions that involve prediction, addition and subtraction. Using the inlet and outlet controls to set the amount of liquid to pour in and out of the cylinder offers the opportunity for the introduction of multiplication (repeated addition) and division (repeated subtraction) too. A marker can be set to indicate an early quantity.

Measuring Scales

Measuring scales is an interactive teaching program (ITP) which allows you to add different masses to or from a scale pan. You can add masses of 1, 2, 5, 10, 50, 100 and 500 units. The pointer or hand shows the total mass. This can be hidden to promote children’s prediction skills. The maximum value of the circular scale can be changed together with the size of the interval. A digital readout can also be hidden or displayed. A red marker can be used to keep a track of previous values and to set target quantities.
