Math in the Community - It's Everyplace You Are!, Grade 5
Math in the Community -- 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 math in the community at the store, library, bank, post office, police station, and other locations in the community. 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. Students are encouraged to share their answers and compare their methods and strategies. The activities incorporate reading comprehension with math skills such as number concepts, computation, patterning, geometry, problem solving, and data analysis. Plus, each unit provides hands-on learning through cutting, coloring, mazes, and more.
