Interactive Simulations, Video Clips, Lesson Plans, Extensions and Assessments
Let you students escape for a day! Take them on a virtual road trip through Kentucky to learn about the mathematics of scale as you explore eight exciting roadside attractions, including the Louisville Slugger Museum, a chicken festival, and a horse park. A short video field trip and an engaging, interactive simulation at each stop along the road help students understand proportional reasoning in real-world applications.
Scale City is an initiative of the STEM Collaborative made possible in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
