Product Description

By George W. Bright, Patricia Lamphere Jordan, Carol Malloy, and Tad Watanabe

Real-world investigations can move students in the middle grades from their earlier, informal understanding of measurement to the abstract, sophisticated understanding they will need in high school. This book provides hands-on activities that build important strategies and concepts. Students learn about accuracy and estimation, and they develop formulas for the perimeter, area, and volume of two- and three-dimensional figures. In exploring proportionality, scaling, and similarity, they build a scale model of a room and make a "pi ruler" to help gauge the age of a tree. As they progress from fundamental measures to derived measures, they investigate such rates as speed and density. The supplemental CD-ROM features interactive electronic activities, master copies of activity pages for students, and additional readings for teachers.

Navigating through Geometry in Grades 6–8 (with CD-ROM)
This book examines the study of geometry in the middle grades as a pivotal point in the mathematical learning of students and emphasizes the geometric thinking that can develop in grades 6–8 as a result of hands-on exploration.$37.95
Navigating through Data Analysis in Grades 6–8 (with CD-ROM)
This book illustrates the general notion of statistics as a process while prompting discussions of increasingly complex mathematical issues.$34.95
Navigating through Algebra in Grades 6–8 (with CD-ROM)
This book shows how middle school students can use mathematical models and represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures to explore the concept of function. $36.95
Navigating through Probability in Grades 6–8 (with CD-ROM)
This book helps students develop their probabilistic thinking by introducing them to the notion of sample space and the use of tree diagrams and geometric regions to represent sample spaces.$41.95
Navigating through Number and Operations in Grades 6-8 (with CD-ROM)
Middle school students consolidate their understanding of integers and rational numbers, increasing their facility with fractions, decimals, and percents and encountering proportionality. This book shows how students can explore these important ideas.$43.95
Navigating through Measurement in Grades 3–5 (with CD-ROM)
This book follows students' natural progression from measuring with informal or nonstandard units to using standard units to measure such attributes as length, weight, angle, and temperature. $41.95
Navigating through Measurement in Grades 9–12 (with CD-ROM)
The need for more sophisticated measurements has led to the discovery of more sophisticated mathematics. The activities in this book highlight this important idea and help students explore an array of measurement strategies and techniques. $43.95
Navigating through Measurement in PreKindergarten–Grade 2 (with CD-ROM)
This book introduces young children to the basic ideas of comparing and ordering lengths, weights, time, and capacities. $35.95
Navigating through Geometry in Grades 3–5 (with CD-ROM)
The "big ideas" of geometry–shape, location, transformations, and spatial visualization–are the focus of this book.$37.95
Navigating through Algebra in Grades 3–5 (with CD-ROM)
The important ideas of algebra, including patterns, variables, equations, and functions, are the focus of this book. $36.95
