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:
While Supplies Last A radio station has a certain number of T-shirts, concert tickets, and gift certificates to give away to the first callers. Students practice subtracting five-digit numbers to calculate how many callers didn’t get a prize.
Skateboard Sort From a dozen skateboards with different designs and patterns, students determine the fraction of striped skateboards, skateboards with flames, skateboards with blue wheels, and other groupings.
Angled Alphabet Students practice recognizing right, acute, and obtuse angles found in particular letters of the alphabet.
Find the Flag Students are shown flags of different countries and find intersecting, perpendicular, and parallel lines in their designs.
Favorite Flavors Ira’s Ice Cream Shop is thinking about changing its flavors. From a graph of the flavors people bought on a hot afternoon, students determine the most popular flavor, which sold in equal amounts, which fraction of people bought Fudge Ripple, and which flavor should be replaced.
