Geometry at Home - It's Everyplace You Are!, Grade 5
Geometry at Home -- It's Everyplace You Are! makes school curriculum come alive. Engaging, hands-on activities help students see the connection between math concepts and their own experiences. The activities are relevant to students' daily lives, drawing on locations, sounds, and materials that appear in or around familiar surroundings. This book includes six units to provide a variety of math experiences. Students will explore geometry at home in the kitchen, bathroom, neighborhood, garage or parking area, porch or outdoor area, and other locations at home. Each unit includes reading comprehension exercises, hands-on activities, and written exercises or patterns. This book has been designed to meet National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards. Activities emphasize key math vocabulary, concepts, and process skills. Studentsare encouraged to share their answers and compare their methods and strategies. The activities incorporate reading comprehension with math concepts such as two- and three-dimensional figures, location and position, coordinate geometry, transformation and symmetry, and visualization and spatial reasoning. Plus, each unit provides hands-on learning through cutting, coloring, and mazes, and more.
