Have you ever wanted your students to actually THINK about math?
Do you want your students to be ENGAGED and MOTIVATED as they work through more rigorous word problems and calculations?
Do you wish you could find a resource that integrated math well with READING, WRITING, SCIENCE, and SOCIAL STUDIES?
All too often, students do not always understand the real life application of math. For many students, math is just a bunch of numbers that they see on a piece of paper. This set of homework is here to change that!
In this Real Word Homework set, students will read a brief summary about a current event, science topic, social studies topic, etc. before beginning any math problems. Students will then apply their comprehension to the following problems. The math problems relate to the summary and require critical thinking to answer. None of the problems are just a simple computation. Students will practice numerous skills beyond just math computation as they solve problems related to the REAL WORLD!
These problems are the perfect resource for HOMEWORK, HANDOUTS, and even ASSESSMENTS!
At the bottom of every sheet, there is even a website link for students to explore more about a topic. This resource is meant to provide students an opportunity to explore topics and events in greater detail. If students are interested in the topic they can always type in the URL or click on the link to bring back more fun facts or research they discovered into the classroom! You can even bring up the link yourself in the classroom and spark interest for all students in the room!
EVERY sheet includes an ANSWER KEY for you to use too!
It will be such a joy for you to see the excitement that this set brings out in your students about math. I truly believe that a resource like this can assist your students in developing a love for math as they see it in the real world about topics they enjoy!
