My Mom Is a Carpenter
Working with data is a foundational concept not only for mathematics, but also for understanding the world around us. Readers will gain exposure to principles of measurement, such as measuring length and using it to perform operations, while other narratives introduce concepts of money and time. Bright visuals help make math not only concrete, but also fun. A relatable narrator describes what it’s like to have a mother who works as a carpenter, including how she uses addition and subtraction of lengths to do her job. This volume meets CCSS Math Standard 2.MD.B.5.
