Success in math requires children to make connections between the real world and math concepts in order to solve problems. Successful problem solvers will be ready for the challenges of mathematics as they advance to more complex topics. The activities in this workbook are designed to help children see how math skills are relevant in their daily lives. Best of all, they’ll have lots of fun! Here’s a peek at what’s inside:
That Does Not Compute! The Great Roboto is on the fritz and is spitting out some wrong answers. Children use their skills in number patterns, subtraction, fractions, and inequalities to separate the correct and incorrect answers.
Piggy Bank Money has been saved in some piggy banks. Children calculate how much money will be in the piggy banks after receiving birthday money or spending it on a new DVD.
Zoo Crew Children use subtraction and measurement skills to help the zoologists compare the lengths of reptiles or weights of primates and measure the length of aquarium animals.
Once Upon a Time Skills using odd and even numbers come in handy to help Hansel and Gretel find candy to take from the sugarcoated house. Knowledge of telling time helps determine when Cinderella can get some shopping done before her stagecoach turns into a pumpkin at midnight.
Field Trip Children practice measurement skills when they take a ruler to the grocery store to measure items in inches, or to the toy store to measure items in centimeters.
