Students will examine various math concepts in this “fall themed” video conference lesson. Using a pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, the presenter will facilitate an interactive student lesson (grades 1-3) on circumference and estimation. Student groups work collaboratively to explore the mathematic concepts and to explain their methods of achieving the answer. Kindergarten students will work on counting, comparing, and measuring. A fun literature selection,The Ugly Pumpkin by Dave Horowitz, is shared to explore the fall tradition of picking the perfect pumpkin. Though similar in theme, the lesson for kindergarten students is different than the lesson for the older students. Please see the program format and standards.

Provider's Cancellation Policy

Muskingum Valley Educational Service Center
Distance Learning Connection and Cancellation Policy 2012-2013


The Muskingum Valley Educational Service Center (MVESC) understands the occasional need to reschedule programs due to changing schedules, inclement weather, or technical difficulties; however, MVESC commits resources to a program the moment a reservation is received and presenters are scheduled. Presenters must be paid for their preparation, time, and travel. Please note the Distance Learning Cancellation Policy below:
1. The school will:
• Have an audience for the time and date the district scheduled the session and coordinate with teachers, technicians, coordinators, treasurers, and other parties prior to submitting the request;
• MVESC asks that anyone making a reservation please check school calendars for holidays, professional development days, and testing dates to avoid potential conflicts.
2. Failure of a school to have the audience available for the scheduled session will result in a $25 charge for the session. Scheduled events must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of the session to avoid the $25 cancellation fee. This fee is nonreturnable and may not be applied toward a future session.
3. MVESC strongly recommends performing a test connection at least two days prior to the event. The school has the right to cancel any program the day of the test if a successful connection cannot be made. In such a case, MVESC will not charge the $25 cancellation fee. If technical reasons prevent a successful connection on the day of the session, the $25 fee also will be waived. The $25 fee applies to all MVESC sponsored programming.
4. If you should not establish a connection, you MUST contact the MVESC by phone at the time of the connection (740-452-4518 x 164, x133, or x171) to notify the instructor. The MVESC will not waive the $25 fee if we are not notified that there is a connection issue.
5. If the connection you have registered for has materials that are sent by mail, you must supply the MVESC with the mailing address of the classroom that will receive the instruction. Failure to supply the MVESC with the proper address will result in additional fees for materials and postage. (The school will be charged for each kit sent by mail and the associated extra postage).
6. Taping of sessions is prohibited.
7. There is a 30 student maximum on all MVESC connections.

State Standards

Ohio Educational Standards and Grade level Indicators:

Kindergarten Math:
Counting and Cardinality
1. Count to 100 by ones and tens
2. Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
3. Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
6. Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.
Measurement and Data
1. Describe measureable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
2. Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/”less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

Grade 1 Math:
Number, Number Sense and Operations
5. Use place value concepts to represent whole numbers using numerals, words, expanded notation and physical models with ones and tens.
Measurement
5. Estimate and measure lengths using non-standard and standard units; i.e., centimeters, inches and feet.

Grade 2 Math:
Number, Number Sense and Operations
13. Estimate the results of whole number addition and subtraction problems using front-end estimation, and judge the reasonableness of the answers.
Measurement
2. Establish personal or common referents for units of measure to make estimates and comparisons; e.g., the width of a finger is a centimeter, a large bottle of soda pop is 2 liters, a small paper clip weighs about one gram.
7. Make and test predictions about measurements, using different units to measure the same length or volume.

Grade 3 Math:
Number, Number Sense and Operations
15. Evaluate the reasonableness of computations based upon operations and the numbers involved (e.g., considering relative size, place value and estimates).
Measurement
2. Establish personal or common referents to include additional units; e.g., a gallon container of milk; a postage stamp is about a square inch.


Data Analysis and Probability
1. Collect and organize data from an experiment, such as recording and classifying observations or measurements, in response to a question posed.

Grade 1 Language Arts:
Phonemic Awareness, Word Recognition and Fluency
2. Identify and complete rhyming words and patterns.
Reading Process: Concepts of Print, Comprehension Strategies and Self-Monitoring Strategies Standard
4. Visualize the information in texts, and demonstrate this by drawing pictures, discussing images in texts or dictating simple descriptions.
6. Compare information (e.g., recognize similarities) in texts using prior knowledge and experience.
9. Monitor comprehension of orally read texts by asking and answering questions.

Grade 2 Language Arts:
Reading Process: Concepts of Print, Comprehension Strategies and Self-Monitoring Strategies Standard
3. Visualize the information in texts and demonstrate this by drawing pictures, discussing images in texts or writing
