Math Sense: Algebra and Geometry. Teacher's Resource Guide.
Phillips, Jan; Osmus, Kathy
This book is a teacher's resource guide designed to help students gain the range of math skills they need to succeed in life, work, and on standardized tests; overcome math anxiety; discover math as interesting and purposeful; and develop good number sense. Topics covered in this book include algebra and geometry. Lessons are organized around four strands: (1) skill lessons that present instruction and practice in math skills including computation and solving word problems; (2) tools lessons emphasizing the use of objects such as calculators or concepts such as estimation, all within real-life contexts; (3) problem solving lessons designed to strengthen estimation and reasoning skills and help students build strategies for solving single and multi-step problems; and (4) application lessons that provide practice with realistic situations that require mathematics.
