Meaningful Math Integration in a STEM Unit


Where is the math?


Teachers tend to lean toward:

  • Math that came with the activity

  • Math in their comfort zone

  • Math based on data collection


Focus on rich, core-based activities that will support grade level skills and standards.


Elissa Called….


Maryland Frameworks

Reference Cards


What do we already know about

the standards?


www.wordle.net


What do we know about effective

mathematics instruction?


Alignment of Standards for Math

  • Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA)

    2. Number and Operations in Base Ten (NBT)

    3. Measurement and Data (MD)

    4. Geometry (G)


Where Do the Butterflies Go?


Day 1: LouisianaPlace the data chart in your notebook


Day 1: Louisiana

Math Activities:

  • Arrange tagged and untagged butterflies in arrays

  • Skip count

  • As a whole group, discuss and write a story problem.

  • Share other possible strategies


In this activity, what other skills

are students developing

that are not in the standards for

this grade?


Day 2: Tennessee


Day 2: Tennessee

Math Activities:

  • Record untagged butterflies and butterflies caught (pictures).

  • Use strategies to find the unknown amount of tagged butterflies

  • With a partner, discuss and write a story problem.

  • Share other possible strategies


Day 3: Maryland


Day 3: Maryland

Math Activities:

  • Record tagged butterflies and butterflies caught (number).

  • Use strategies to find the unknown amount of untagged butterflies

  • Individually write a story problem, then share with a partner.

  • Challenge students to write a put- together and a take-apart problem.

  • Share other possible strategies

Where Do the Butterflies Go?


In which direction do butterflies

seem to be migrating in the spring?

How do you know?

Use your map, data and

observations to support your answer.


How did we see effective

math practices in these activities?


How could we adapt this activity to

fit another grade level?

Or……

How could we adapt this activity to

meet another standard for 2nd

grade math?
