Wow, That is Math?
My students need 26 subscriptions to DynaMath magazine to help connect math to their everyday lives and practice their reading skills.
"I never use math except in school", and "Why do I have to learn this?" are comments I hear often as the school year begins. These magazines combine real-world math and stunning visuals with middle school math skills to help teach Common Core Standards, which integrates math and language arts.
Our school population consists of military children and students living in public housing.
Because of these family situations, we have many students with at least one parent deployed, they live in a single parent situation, or they live with a grandparent our other family member. These stresses effect the time that can be given to support our students at home.
These DynaMath magazines feature captivating nonfiction articles that relate math to extraordinary news stories from around the world. With these magazines, my students can practice their reading skills and at the same time relate what they are learning in math class to these real-world situations. I will be able to connect the math concept we have been learning to one of the articles, proving to my students that we do use math outside of the classroom.
The biggest difference with the new Common Core curriculum is the way all subjects should be connected.
What better way to accomplish this than to read an article, then answer math questions embedded in the story. My students will be completing word problems with ease and excitement, not even realizing they are "doing math".
