Teach Kids about Numbers All around Us
Hudson, Hannah Trierweiler
Instructor, v120 n5 p37-40 Spr 2011
Recognizing the role numbers play in people's everyday lives is crucial to students' math understanding now and down the road. That's why Bob Krech, a curriculum specialist in New Jersey's West Windsor-Plainsboro district, likes to teach a lesson he calls "Numbers All Around Us." This lesson uses real-world examples to show that numbers help people answer many questions, including "How much?" "How fast?" and "Where do I go?" Expert teacher Bob Krech shares strategies for teaching real-world math.
