Measuring, telling time and counting money: K5 connects math to the real world

Our online measurement lessons help kids learn to count money, tell time and measure temperature, length, weight and capacity in both customary and metric units.

Learn to tell time

Our kindergarten, grade one, grade two and grade three measurement lessons include activities to help kids learn to tell time.

Learn to count money

From recognizing coins in our kindergarten lessons to visiting an ATM and making change in later grades, our lessons help kids learn to count money in realistic scenarios.

Measurement activities for kids

Did Granddad ride dinosaurs?  Kids struggle with concepts of time can be amusing but are not surprising - time is a very abstract concept and younger kids learn tangible concepts much more easily.  For this reason, K5 introduces kids to mathematical concepts through themed animations and real-world scenarios.

  • Recognize coins, count money and make change
  • Understand and tell time
  • Measure temperature, capacity, length & weight
  • Use a calendar
  • Use benchmarks to make comparisons
  • Estimate length and capacity
  • Use measurement tools including balance scales and thermometers
  • Compare and convert units of length, weight and capacity (customary and metric)
  • Understand and measure surface area
  • Use a compass, scale and legend on a map
  • Measure and calculate perimeter and circumference
  • Use elapsed time to solve real world problems
  • Measure the difference between angles

Real world themes for real world skills

Measuring, counting money and telling time are practical, real world skills. Our online multimedia lessons use animated real world themes (such as visiting an ATM) to make a connection to your child’s own experiences. We want kids to learn math concepts in a tangible rather than abstract fashion.

Immediate feedback greatly enhances learning

K5 Math lets your child know right away when they get something right or wrong. Kids remember better and are more motivated when they receive immediate feedback about something they’ve done.

Bite-sized lessons provide flexibility

Lessons are broken into 5-10 minute segments so that study sessions can be short and flexible. Most kids learn better with more frequent but shorter study sessions.

We place your child at the right instruction level

K5 kids start by completing a free online assessment of their math skills.Kids are then placed in lessons at their skill level, avoiding the boredom and frustration associated with lessons that are too easy or too hard.

What is K5?
