Using trade books to teach math? Who'd have ever thought??
One of the most underrated and useful tools in teaching mathematics can be, in fact, a book!
Using the very detailed format (most parts are even scripted!) as your guide, get your students building their reading and collaboration skills AND exploring the concepts of Pythagorean Theorem through the popular trade book, "Pythagoras, What's Your Angle?"! Activity handout that accompanies the lesson included.
