"By showing students how math plays an integral part in the ever popular world of sports, Lesley S.J. Farmer makes the subject exciting and relevant. Engaging units cover topics of measurement, math functions, geometry, statistics, and economics - with the sports theme woven throughout. Each lesson contains "warm-ups" (single-concept exercises) and "student game plans" (extensive open-ended projects). For those who wish to learn more in a given area, there are "stretchers" (advanced activities); and in the "dugout," educators can find brain-teasers and sports trivia to supplement and enhance the lessons. Based on the new NCTM and AASL standards, this book gives detailed instructions to teachers for both lesson implementations and student assessment

Digital inclusion, teens, and your library by Lesley S. J Farmer( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows how to help technologically disadvantaged teens to overcome barriers and become tech-savvy The digital divide is a disturbing reality, and teens increasingly fall into distinct categories of technological "haves" and "have-nots," whether or not computers are available to them in the schools. This trend undermines the futures of our youth and jeopardizes the vitality of society. Today's librarians are in a unique position to help bridge the gap. This guide helps librarians to identify the "tech-nots"--Technologically disadvantaged teens - in a community or school and to reach out and build information literacy in underserved teen populations. The author goes beyond recommending computers for every teen, and demonstrates how to overcome teen misperceptions and disinterest in computers. After examining the problem and the populations most affected, the author discusses how to build awareness and motivation, train staff, create space and time, build the collection, develop partnerships with other agencies and organizations, offer services, and overcome barriers with specific populations.; Citing benchmark programmes and services, Farmer offers a wealth of exciting new ways for libraries to connect with at-risk teens today
