**Candy Corn Math**WOES Fifth Grade**Benchmarks**• A benchmark is a familiar number used as a point of reference. You can use a benchmark to determine a reasonable estimate. • If one piece of candy corn is: • Remember your base 10 rules: n x 1= 1, n x 10= 10, n x 100= 100 Height: in. cm. Weight: oz. kg. Length: in. cm.**Measurement Charts**Length Standard System METRIC System**Reading a Ruler**• Standard: http://www.rsinnovative.com/rulergame/ • Metric: http://www.askmrcscience.net/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/readingametricruler.pdf**Station One: Length**You will need a ruler that measures standard and metric systems. • How many centimeters long is 1 candy corn? • How many cm. long are 10 candy corns? • How many cm. long is 100 candy corns? • How many candy corns are needed to reach 6 in.? • Estimate the length of all of your candy corns in cm. and in inches. • What is the actual length of all of your candy corns in cm. and in in.?**Measurement Charts**Weight/ Mass StandardSystem METRIC System 1 milligram = 0.001 gram1 centigram = 0.01 gram1 decigram = 0.1 gram1 kilogram = 1000 grams**Station Two: Weight/Mass**You will need a scale and weights that measures using the metric system. • What is the weight of 10 candy corns in grams? • How many candy corns would equal 1 kilogram? • If each candy corn costs $0.02, what would be the cost of one kilogram? • If each candy corn costs $0.02, what would be the cost of 200 grams?**Measurement Charts**Capacity 1 cup (c.)= 8 fluid ounces (fl. oz.) 1 pint (pt.)= 2 cups (c.) 1 quart (qt.)= 4 cups (c.) 1 quart (qt.)= 2 pints (pt.) 1 gallon (gal.)= 4 quarts (qt.) Liquid Dry 1-1/2 tsp.= 1/2 tbsp. 3 tsp. = 1 tbsp. 2 tbsp. =1/8 cup 4 tbsp. =1/4 cup 8 tbsp. =1/2 cup 16 tbsp. = 1 cup**Station Three: Capacity**You will need a tsp., tbsp., measuring cup and a pint jar. Estimate first then check. • How many candy corns will fit in a teaspoon? • How many candy corns will fit in a tablespoon? • How many candy corns will fit into a cup? • How many candy corns will fit into a pint? 5. How many candy corns will fit into a quart? 6. How many candy corns will fit into a gallon? Now, use your Math knowledge :**Finding Range, Mean,**Median and Mode Range refers to the distance “Between”. The Rangerefers to the distance between the highest and lowest value within a set of numbers. Strategy: Order your data from greatest to least. Mean means “Average”.Mean = the average of a group of numbers. Strategy: Add all numbers then divide by the number of entries. Medianmeans is in the “Middle”. Strategy: Order the numbers from least to greatest. Mode represents the most “Popular”The Mode is the number that appears the most frequently within a set of number. Strategy: What number do you see the most often?**Station Four: Finding Range, Mean, Median and Mode**• Time each member of your group to find out how long it takes to eat one candy corn. DONOT RUSH! Record your answers in minutes and seconds. • Find the range of the times. • Find the median of the times. • Find the mode of the times, if there is one. • Find the mean of the times. • Make a stem and leaf plot to represent your data. You will need a stopwatch.**Fractions: Review**The top number the Numerator, it is the number of parts you have. The bottom number the Denominator, it is the number of parts the whole is divided into. Hint: Denominator- “down”-ominator**Station Five: Fractions**• Divide the candy corns into two equal groups. What is ½ of the total number? • Divide the candy corn into four groups. How many are in each: • How many are in 2/4 ? • How many are in ¾ ? • How many are in 4/4 ? • Divide the candy corns into sixths. a. What does 1/6 equal? b. What does 2/6 equal? c. What does 3/6 equal? d. What does 4/6 equal? e. What does 5/6 equal? f. What does 6/6 equal? 4. What fractional parts had the same number of candy corns?**Station Six: Word problems**Try to write each problem using a variable. 1. addition 2. subtraction 3. multiplication 4. division 5. inequality Try to solve each other’s problems.
