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.

"The shoreline of the southern Great Lakes is extremely important to migrant waterfowl; as well, it is among the areas most heavily impacted by human activities in North America. The International Joint Commission which is charged with improving the environmental quality of the Great Lakes, has designated for specific remedial actions 43 Areas of Concern (AOC's) where the aquatic environment bas been most severely degraded. Seven of these are found along the Canadian shore of the southern Great Lakes. Aerial surveys of migrant waterfowl use of much of this shore have been routinely undertaken since 1968 by the Canadian WildIife Service, and subsets of these data are summarized for each AOC"--Abstract.
