Library Media Connection

Whether going in the grocery store, planting a garden, or determining food calorie counts, students struggle with seeing the relevance of mathematics in their daily life, With this exceptional series Minden takes the normal events in our lives and shows how mathematics is both a pertinent and vital part of our regular routine. This easy-to-read series uses full color photographs, featuring girls and minorities to illustrate the concepts. These books are aligned to the National Mathematics Standards and Partnership for the 21st Century Skills framework, which looks at learning and innovative skills. Callout boxes provide the reader with supplementary information. Throughout each book are real work math challenges. At the end of each book are additional readings, web sites, answers to the challenge questions, and a glossary. This series would be an excellent addition for the health curriculum as well. Our students need to be equipped for living in the 21st century and this excellent series shows how math makes an impact on us daily. Highly Recommended.
