Qubits World Instructions
Qubits supplements the
following CCSSM standards:
Using a physical construction toy like Qubits can effectively address several CCSSM standards, particularly those that involve geometry, spatial reasoning, and problem-solving. The following are some examples of how Qubits can be used to address specific CCSSM standards:
Model with mathematics (Standard for Mathematical Practice #4): Using Qubits to create 2D and 3D shapes or structures can help students understand the relationship between mathematical concepts and real-world applications. They can use Qubits to model geometric shapes, explore symmetry, and investigate the properties of polygons and polyhedra.
Use appropriate tools strategically (Standard for Mathematical Practice #5): Qubits serve as an excellent hands-on manipulative tool that students can use to explore mathematical concepts. By using Qubits strategically, students can gain a deeper understanding of geometric concepts, spatial relationships, and problem-solving strategies.
Attend to precision (Standard for Mathematical Practice #6): As students work with Qubits, they need to be precise in their construction and measurement of shapes and structures. This can help students develop a better appreciation for precision in mathematics and the importance of accuracy in their work.
Look for and make use of structure (Standard for Mathematical Practice #7): By building and analyzing structures with Qubits, students can identify patterns and structures within mathematical concepts, such as the properties of geometric shapes and the relationships between different polygons and polyhedra. They can then use these structures to better understand and solve problems more efficiently.
Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning (Standard for Mathematical Practice #8): Working with Qubits, students can observe repeating patterns in the construction of shapes and structures, which can help them identify regularities and make generalizations about geometric concepts and relationships.
In addition to these specific standards, using Qubits in the classroom can also promote problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration skills, which are essential components of the CCSSM and contribute to students' overall mathematical proficiency.
