Zoolutions : a mathematical expedition with topics for grades 4 through 8 by Anne Burgunder ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Throughout the working world, basic mathematical ability and well-refined problem-solving and research skills are in great demand. But school teachers and librarians often find it difficult to interest their students in math, research, and problem solving. Zoolutions introduces a fun and interesting way for teachers to approach these topics, focusing on problem solving and research in a group environment. The book provides a number of questions about animals - including mice, tigers, polar bears, giraffes, and elephants - that require students to locate information on the animal, read and analyze this information critically, and determine the solution using math and reasoning. As a result of this process, students feel more confident in their ability to solve problems. They will develop the ability to use information and ideas, and enjoy using math! Zoolutions makes the school library a central part of school life by helping teachers and librarians integrate research skills into the curriculum and will help teachers and librarians address the need for math reform and implement the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
