Introducing Multiplication and Division, Kangaroos and Numbers: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 17.
Ihrig, Elizabeth A., Ed.
This volume is the seventeenth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by second-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of five groups of activities. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. In this unit, multiplication is approached as repeated addition on a number line. In a second set of lessons, multiplication is considered in conjunction with arrays. Addition and multiplication are then compared, and simple fractions are introduced. A final review section is also included. (SD)
