|Creative ways to use art, writing, research, and Internet projects to make math more exciting for students. The Math Squad art projects are year-long projects; rather than "lesson oriented," they create an "adventure theme" that facilitates math instruction. Request a free sample curriculum and guide for using art to teach math; learn about the algebra journals and the map-related projects "Math Treasure Island" and "Quest for the Golden Calculator," created by the author and used with his middle school students at Cincinnati Christian Schools. See also his TrueType fraction font for formatting numbers with a horizontal bar; and Bennett's online, interactive challenges: multiplication review; calculating surface area of rectagular prisms; Celsius-Fahrenheit conversions; and simple factoring.|
