The Patchwork Quilt: A Context for Problem Solving.
Carey, Deborah A.
Arithmetic Teacher, v40 n4 p199-203 Dec 1992
Discusses how children's literature can be used as a context to develop problem-solving tasks. Illustrates this idea by developing tasks to teach concepts related to multiplication through the context of "The Patchwork Quilt," a children's book by Valerie Flournoy. Suggests activity extensions to determine unit sizes, draw scale models, and make a quilt. (MDH)
