Math Lesson Plans and Activity Ideas

Measurements and geometry

  • Teaching Volume -- by Sandy Cunningham(.pptx), NY TIC
  • 3-D Topographic Maps -- get a bird's-eye view
  • Water Quality Probes -- using Vernier
  • Concentrations -- understanding ppm
  • Trout Length -- one strategy for measuring
  • Feeding Time -- measuring food by weight or volume
  • Trout Length -- different strategies for measuring
  • Thermometers -- how to know the temperature
  • Water Quality Graph -- plotted by time or population
  • Population Graph -- tracking eggs and fry
  • Trout Growth -- track their size
  • Volume measurements -- calculation vs. water displacement
  • Tank Size -- cubic centimeters vs. gallons
  • Stream flow -- velocity and volume
  • Tank Volume -- compared to everyday objects


Percentages and algebra

  • Brook Trout Survival -- only a percentage make it (from PA)
  • Salmon Survival Game -- it's tough being a salmon
  • Counting Trout -- using proportion to estimate population
  • Water Quality Graph -- plotted by time or population
  • Population Graph -- tracking eggs and fry
  • Trout Growth -- track their size
