Meaningful Mathematics, Level Two. Teacher's Guide to Lesson Plans.
Hendrickson, A. Dean
Mathematics and the use of mathematical thinking should be much more than what has been traditional school arithmetic. Much of the mathematical reasoning can be developed and experienced out of school, particularly in the home. This material is a teacher's guide designed to help parents support what is done with their children in class. Background material for parents is provided. Some underlying principles in teaching mathematics meaningfully are listed. Assessment record sheets are presented. A total of 58 activities on the following concepts and skills are included: (1) comparing; (2) counting; (3) classification; (4) using patterns; (5) number; (6) number operations; (7) problem solving; (8) place value; (9) equality; (10) fractions; (11) correspondences; (12) geometry; (13) logic; (14) estimation; and (15) measurement.
