Library Media Connection - Real World Math

The interdisciplinary focus of the books in this series will give them broad appeal for cross-curricular lesson plans. Each title focuses on a particular geographic feature, and presents it with a balance of science, geography, and mathematics in a way that encourages readers to think critically about subjects and link new facts with several different subject areas. Each book defines and explains scientific concepts and terms, gives geographic examples from around the world, and poses “real-world math challenges” asking readers to apply math principles such as algebra, fractions, proportions, and percentages. Equally applicable and useful for math, geography, and earth science classrooms, the books of this series broaden the spectrum of a concept to encourage readers to think harder and make new connections between facts and material. Colorful photography and friendly, personal writing give appeal to the subject matter. Middle-grade teachers looking for interdisciplinary materials will find this a very useful series for their classrooms.
