Breaking Away from the Math Book II: More Creative Projects for Grades K-8.
Baggett, Patricia; Ehrenfeucht, Andrzej
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) recommended the use of calculators in the classroom in 1989. While calculators are more readily available in classrooms today than they were a few years ago, the recommendation is rarely followed in elementary grades. One of the reasons for this is a lack of appropriate classroom materials. This book provides tested lessons in which calculators play the role of tools helping to solve mathematical problems. Sections include: (1) Counting and Numbers; (2) Money; (3) Puzzles and Games; (4) Measuring; (5) Science; (6) Constructions; (7) Pythagorean Theorem; (8) Miscellaneous Activities; and (9) Learning How To Use a Calculator.
