Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (April 1, 2013)
Gr 5-6-This subset provides an engaging mix of social science, language arts, and math. For example, in Designer Digs readers will get caught up in Anela's school project that requires her to use equations for finding area to create unusual living spaces. Each book begins with a discussion of strategies and provides several methods for solving the posed problem. Student engagement is encouraged with leading questions. Additional sections include a "Discover Activity" and an informational text section that connects the math discussion to science, history, or art. Photos, maps, illustrations, charts, and diagrams aid in comprehension. Each book ends with a "What Comes Next" page that gives ideas for expanding on the concepts learned and an "Additional Notes" section that provides answers to the various problems. These volumes are not contrived collections of math activities; readers will believe the math is part of the story. This casual and creative approach will be especially helpful to reluctant math students. Overall, a comprehensive set of CCSS resources. (c) Copyright 2013.
