Matt, Bibi, and their dog Riley crawled through the tiny opening first. FWUMP! A secret door suddenly closed behind them . . . The Zills family is summoned to Egypt to help find the hidden burial chamber of an ancient pharaoh. But when Matt and Bibi get trapped in the pharaoh's pyramid, they stumble upon an even bigger mystery. With only each other, their dog Riley, and the geometric hieroglyphics on the walls to help them, the twins must use their math skills to locate the burial chamber--and the way out. Luckily, Matt and Bibi know their stuff when it comes to geometric solids, and so will the readers of this adventure in math!

To date, a vast majority of classrooms continue to fall short in the implementation and direction of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM), in part because most of these classrooms continue to use traditional methods for teaching mathematics. That is about to change, and Mathematics in the K-8 Classroom and Library shows you how it's done. After an introduction to the NCTM's principles and process standards, each remaining chapter is devoted to an NCTM content standard. The book offers engaging, research-based strategies and booklists of specific titles that, together, can be used to increase student achievement. The strategies suggested here provide a hands-on, student-centered focus that allows students to make connections with prior learning, personal experiences, and good books. Both the recommended children's books and the activities will appeal even to reluctant readers and students for whom mathematics might be a challenge. Each chapter includes an extensive, annotated list of texts, dozens of hands-on activities, handouts, and writing prompts.

Neglected by his parents from the moment he was diagnosed with autism at age three, Milo McCance survives his first eleven years in a world of isolation and rejection. Math and science are all that make sense to him. When his history-professor father takes a tentative interest in him, Milo unknowingly initiates a path to his own destruction. All hell breaks loose. Milo must find his way through the ensuing chaos and looming threat. The second half of the story time-warps eight years in the future to the year 2020. Milo is now age twenty. A group of teachers in Milo’s former high school are determined to eliminate the growing population of autistic students enrolled in the school. Through a series of events, Milo is asked to team up with the school’s Director to thwart the group’s Machiavellian efforts to erase any influence autism has on the school’s culture. As Milo comprehends the parameters of the group’s threat to the students, he finds himself caught between past terrors and future annihilation. Milo, Autistic Warrior is a novel about family, relationships, autism, repressed rage and the courage required to find identity in the midst of fear and destructiveness.

This book's 50-plus lessons-each based on a different picture book or story-will help classroom teachers build a foundation for teaching math, science, and social studies concepts to their students. Each lesson uses children's literature to make challenging, abstract concepts relevant to children's lives, inviting them to learn these concepts while responding to a story's illustrations, theme, characters, and plot. The lessons also demonstrate how teachers can use children's literature to meet national standards in math, science, and social studies. Chapters 1 through 5 set the stage for using picture books, discussing the effective, imaginative integration of literature into the classroom. Teachers will learn to create an environment that ensures that when children and books come together, the experience is enjoyable and thought provoking. Chapters 6 through 9 provide individual lessons, by grade level, with detailed activities based on specific books.
