FUN measuring activity

Miss MathDork has this really fun measuring activity - but it's not only fun, it ALSO teaches CONCEPTS, which is SO important in math.

Just like my hubby said last night... if you only focus on memorizing the formulas of math, you might get by for a little while, but eventually you come to a stopping point and it all falls apart. It's kind of like having lots of "head knowledge", which won't work. You have to get  "heart knowledge" - a true understanding of math and its principles and WHY it works. That's the only true way.

So anyway, I feel Miss MathDork is on the right track and really achieves that with her activity.  She also has a poster for you to download.



Go take a look!
