A regular department of the journal that features collections of short activities focused on a monthly theme, Math by the Month articles aim for an inquiry or problem-solving orientation that includes at least four activities each for grade bands K–2, 3–4, and 5–6. This issue considers how children’s toys and games offer many opportunities to count, compare numbers, look for patterns, explore the coordinate plane, and investigate fractions and ratios.
