This book's 50-plus lessons-each based on a different picture book or story-will help classroom teachers build a foundation for teaching math, science, and social studies concepts to their students. Each lesson uses children's literature to make challenging, abstract concepts relevant to children's lives, inviting them to learn these concepts while responding to a story's illustrations, theme, characters, and plot. The lessons also demonstrate how teachers can use children's literature to meet national standards in math, science, and social studies. Chapters 1 through 5 set the stage for using picture books, discussing the effective, imaginative integration of literature into the classroom. Teachers will learn to create an environment that ensures that when children and books come together, the experience is enjoyable and thought provoking. Chapters 6 through 9 provide individual lessons, by grade level, with detailed activities based on specific books.

Ian Stewart, author of the bestselling Professor Stewart's Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities, presents a new and magical mix of games, puzzles, paradoxes, brainteasers, and riddles. He mingles these with forays into ancient and modern mathematical thought, appallingly hilarious mathematical jokes, and enquiries into the great mathematical challenges of the present and past. Amongst a host of arcane and astonishing facts about every kind of number from irrational or imaginary to complex or cuneiform, we find out: how to organise chaos; how matter balances anti-matter; how to turn a sphere inside out (without creasing it...); why you can't comb a hairy ball; how to calculate pi by observing the stars. And we get some tantalising glimpses of the maths of life and the universe.Mind-stretching, enlightening and endlessly amusing, Professor Stewart's new entertainment will stimulate, delight, and enthral.

To date, a vast majority of classrooms continue to fall short in the implementation and direction of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM), in part because most of these classrooms continue to use traditional methods for teaching mathematics. That is about to change, and Mathematics in the K-8 Classroom and Library shows you how it's done. After an introduction to the NCTM's principles and process standards, each remaining chapter is devoted to an NCTM content standard. The book offers engaging, research-based strategies and booklists of specific titles that, together, can be used to increase student achievement. The strategies suggested here provide a hands-on, student-centered focus that allows students to make connections with prior learning, personal experiences, and good books. Both the recommended children's books and the activities will appeal even to reluctant readers and students for whom mathematics might be a challenge. Each chapter includes an extensive, annotated list of texts, dozens of hands-on activities, handouts, and writing prompts.
