KnapSack Math.
Martin, Susan
A project was conducted to help parents in adult literacy classes learn how to help their children with mathematics. During the project, numerous kits were created for parent and child to sign out and take home. The kits contain all the materials needed for a mathematical activity, including the mathematics concept targeted in the kit and suggestions for using everyday materials around the house and the community. This document contains a summary of the project along with a lesson plan for conducting a parent workshop introducing the kits and instruction sheets for 18 kits. Topics covered in the kits include the following: one-to-one correspondence, counting, measurement, capacity and volume, geometric shapes, and fractions. Instruction sheets in Spanish are provided for four of the activities. (KC)
