I teach second grade at a public school in California. I have discovered that students respond so well to media that it is a great hook for getting them involved in our math projects. I would like to implement this program with my 2006/2007 students, but this will be a gift that can be used for years to come. There are a total of eighty second grade students at our school that would benefit from this gift.
Make sense of math! Using number sense, algorithms, and hands-on manipulatives, kids tackle math problems found in real-life situations. Whether splitting a pizza evenly, estimating the cost of a new toy, or graphing the results of a science project, math is encountered in many forms. Students will grasp the importance of math in everyday life, and how to solve a problem using different strategies. This exciting video series salutes math heroes from architects to marine biologists, and enables kids to test their math mettle in fun game show segments. Using memorable tips, clear examples, and colorful graphics, Math for Children takes the mystery out of math!
