This listing features a 1997 teacher resource book by Scholastic that was written by Martin Lee and Marcia Miller and is titled Real-Life Math Investigations: 30 Activities that Help Students Apply Mathematical Thinking to Real-life Situations. Each investigation in this book asks a question and presents a plan of action. It is up to students to use their critical thinking skills and number sense to evaluate their work and the work of their classmates. It's up to you, the teacher, to help them recognize and apply the math ideas embedded in every investigation. Each activity includes a page for the teacher with all the necessary information needed to launch the activity. This page is followed by a reproducible page for the students which contains the investigation question and what they need to do to complete the assignment. There is also an Appendix with extra ideas as well as generic reproducibles you can provide to students as they investigate. This is a valuable resource for a math teacher or parents who homeschool their children. The book is in like new condition and comes from a smoke-free and pet-free home.
