 Dinah Zike's Big Book of Math: Elementary, K-6 and
Dinah Zike's Big Book of Math: Middle & High School

 By Dinah Zike



 These books provide instructions on making Foldables as well as ideas on how to use them in the math classroom. A Foldable is a 3-D, student-made, interactive graphic organizer based upon a skill. Making a Foldable gives students a fast, kinesthetic activity that helps them organize and retain information. Foldables are designed to be used as a study guide for main ideas and key points; however, Foldables can also be used to solve math problems, answer questions, explain computations, and record definitions. The purpose of these books is to give teachers countless ways to customize Foldables to meet K-6 math curriculum needs. Please specify which book you'd like to receive (K-6 or middle-high school), when submitting your request.

 Hands-on Standards:
The First Source for Introducing Math Manipulatives
By ETA/Cuisenaire
How can we make sure that children grasp the real meaning behind mathematical concepts instead of just memorizing numbers and repeating them back on tests? How can we help children develop an in-depth mathematical understanding? This preK-6 series provides teachers with easy-to-access ways to help children "visualize mathematics". Each manual delivers age-appropriate lessons designed to engage teachers and children in meaningful, authentic learning. Each lesson defines the specific concepts and skills that children will be taught and includes step-by-step procedures for children to use in solving a problem that easily links math to their day-to-day lives. Please specify which book you'd like to receive (preK-K, 1st-2nd, 3rd-4th, or 5th-6th), when submitting your request.
