Product Description

Whether you are part of a teaching team or simply want to present math concepts in a realistic thematic framework, Walch's new Integrating Math in the Real World series is for you. This series of reproducible teacher books offers an easy and effective way to connect math to a variety of curriculum areas--including social studies, science, language arts, health, consumer studies, and art--through real life applications that reinforce key concepts. Developed to meet NCTM standards, these activities help students develop problem solving strategies, make connections between life experiences and the math classroom, and use mathematical reason and computation skills.

The Math of Food features twenty-one lessons on issues of food and nutrition, including proper diet, exercise, nutritional information labels, and the problems of world hunger. Students develop good nutritional habits and a regular exercise routine while practicing important skills. These active engaging lessons teach such concepts as percents, pre-algebra, rounding, volume, area, fractions, and decimals while developing skills including data analysis and collection, reading tables and charts, measurement, estimation, and more.

A chart at the beginning of the book shows you how each lesson connects to the NCTM standards. Teacher pages precede each student worksheet, detailing the concepts addresed, materials needed, and procedures. You also get guidance on alternatives to traditional assessment, extention activities, and a list of related Web sites so you can connect lessons to the Internet with ease.
