Abstract:

"In their second book copublished by the National Council of Teachers of English and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, David and Phyllis Whitin offer K₆6 teachers a wealth of ideas for integrating literature and mathematics, including: ʺ Specific criteria for evaluating math-related books, with emphasis on inquiry, critical thinking, diversity, and individual challenge ʺ Practical discussions about books and their use in K₆6 classrooms ʺ An in-depth look at problem posing and book pairs as effective strategies for engaging all students ʺ Explicit connections made to NCTM₂s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000) and NCTE and IRA₂s Standards for the English Language Arts (1996) ʺ Interesting sidebars of extension activities and text sets ʺ Practical strategies for introducing math-related books to children ʺ An annotated list of the best math-related literature available"--publisher's website (http://www.ncte.org/store/books/elem/115358.htm).
