Which stories / trade books would be >applicable to grades 5-7? > >Thanks! --Yafa Ginosar Hello, I have discovered that books that are written so that young children can read them can still be used with older children. My high school students enjoy an occasional "storytime in math." I mainly use the books as an introduction to concepts or to pose a problem. Some of the stories I've used is "Anno's Mysterious Multiplying Jar" - factorials, counting, large numbers "One Monkey Too Many" - problem solving, combinations/counting "How Much is a Million?" - magnitude of numbers, measurement Hope this helps. -Jeanne, for the T2T service Thanks for visiting our on-line community.
