Provides teachers with well-defined, creative, literature-based, standards-based activities that can be easily implemented in a Grade 6-8 mathematics lesson. Each activity references the relevant NCTM and national content area standards.  Discusses the importance of teaching in an integrated fashion and presents various children's literature as an effective means to deliver mathematics instruction integrated with science, social studies, and the arts.  Written specifically for classroom teachers in grades 6-8.

Former aerospace engineer and systems programmer Ward (curriculum integration, Rice U. School Mathematics Project) has some ten years of experience in university-level mathematics education. She presents the third in a series of three volumes offering elementary and middle school teachers an array of easy-to-implement, literature-based activities into their math lessons; the first volume addressed K-2, the second grades 3-5, and this final text grades 6-8. The material is organized into three sections on literature-based mathematics and science activities, social studies activities, and visual arts activities. Each section includes an overview of the connection between mathematics and the specific content area, and a list of concepts and skills featured in the literature-based activities, followed by detailed descriptions of ten-plus books and ways to incorporate them into classroom lessons. Includes an extensive list of references and several reproducible assessment tools. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
