Exploring Everyday Math: Ideas for Students, Teachers, and Parents
Apelman, Maja; King, Julie
This book focuses on everyday math and parent involvement. It is divided into three parts and contains activities that help teachers involve parents in everyday math. Part I, Getting Started, describes the organization of the book and includes a curriculum chart. Part II, Involving Parents, discusses how children learn math and strategies for explaining the program. Part III, Everyday Math Activities, includes activities on the topics of family history, personal statistics, supermarket shopping, in the kitchen, eating out, money management, telephone math, taking care of the mail, and cars and travel. Every activity chapter begins with a chapter overview and presents activities sequentially, starting with math activities for younger children and progressing to more advanced projects for the upper elementary grades. Sample letters to parents and lists of favorite children's books are also included. (JRH)
