        Standard Measures and Conversions within a System: Solve the Measurement Problem!

        In this Cyberchase media gallery, the Cybersquad must try to follow a recipe exactly to create a mixture that will help cure their friend Slider. At first, the squad must find a way to ensure standard measures of the ingredients. When this proves only partially effective, they must determine how to make the mixture five times stronger. In the accompanying classroom activity, students use measurement tools, mathematical knowledge, and cooperation skills to create a complete class conversion chart on the board from a 1/4 teaspoon to 1 cup. They then use equations to prove that their conversions are accurate. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
