This book presents a series of hands-on problem-solving activities designed to interest and motivate students of all abilities.
The content emerges from the fundamental notion of discrete math. Discrete math is a topic that is increasingly becoming important in school mathematics, from primary to graduate levels.
Building Big Ideas in Math is a rich source of simply stated, interesting problems. These problems require a level of problem solving skills not usually addressed in the normal routine.
Each engaging problem is presented using cute frogs and includes:
- Teacher information
- Student reproducible pages
- Transparency masters
- Assessment hints
- Frog facts
Each problem includes specific connections to NCTM process and contents standards. Interesting "Frog Facts" throughout the books add interest and provide the basis for additional problem-solving, reading and research.
BIG IDEAS include triangular numbers, factorials, thinking strategies, tree diagrams, networks, iteration, translations and rotations, and much more!
