The Geometry section of Exploring Math
through Literature contains 16 articles from NCTM’s Teaching Children Mathematics and Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, along with downloadable
lesson plans and activity sheets.
For all of
these articles, at least one of the lesson plans is related to specific
standards within the Geometry domain of the Common Core State Standards for
Mathematics (CCSSM). Most of the lesson plans are also related to one or more
other CCSSM domains.
the only section in this product that includes material for all grade bands
from pre-K to grade 8. Each lesson plan provides a suggested grade band, such
as “K–Grade 2,” “Grades 3–5,” or “Grades 7–8.” Teachers are encouraged,
however, to explore the mathematical topics within the lesson, the tasks in any
accompanying activity, and the particular works of children’s literature the
lesson engages with in order to determine which articles and lessons are the
best fit for their students.
