Math for the REAL World: Grades 5 – 6 (Levels T – Y)
Math for the REAL World
Math for the REAL World is a program of leveled readers that integrate math, reading, and language. Each book addresses one of the NCTM focal points and connects the math to its real-life context. Each kit touches on the five strands of mathematics: • Number sense, properties, and operations • Measurement • Geometry and spatial sense • Data analysis, statistics, and probability • Algebra and functions Because Math for the REAL World leveled books connect computation and calculation to real-life concepts and applications, they address many important Science and Social Studies standards, as well as the academic language of Math and the content areas.

Testimonial:I especially enjoyed using these books to model differentiated instruction for the math teachers with literature circles because it tapped into increasing student motivation [students choose the book] and met individual student needs as teachers worked with specific reading skills in small groups.Jana, Math Coach, Berkmar Middle School, GATestimonial:Ultimately, these books have been a starting point as students connect more of their non-fiction reading to mathematics concepts when reading across the disciplines in middle school.Jana, Math Coach, Berkmar Middle School, GATestimonial:We can continue to use these books over and over again in future years.Jana, Math Coach, Berkmar Middle School, GA
