Geometry at School--It's Everyplace You Are makes school curriculum come alive! Engaging, hands-on activities help students see the connection between geometry concepts and their own experiences. Activities are relevant to the daily lives of students, drawing on locations, objects, and concepts that appear in and around familiar surroundings.
This book includes six units to provide a variety of math experiences. Students will explore geometry at school in the classroom, in the lunchroom, on the playground, in the library, on the way to school, and in other locations at school. Each unit includes reading comprehension exercises, hands-on activities, and written exercises.
The activities were developed to meet the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards. Activities emphasize key geometry vocabulary, concepts, and process skills. Students are encouraged to share their answers and compare their methods and strategies. These activities incorporate reading comprehension with math skills such as patterning, sorting, identifying, comparing, analyzing, and examining two- and three-dimensional models. Each unit provides hands-on learning through cutting, coloring, mazes, and more.show more
