Math Correlations Teachers' Notes Look Inside Have you ever wondered what happens at a fairground once a state fair ends? Find out as you visit a fairground for a full year of exciting seasonal events and activities. As you explore the grounds, you will learn how to find volume using models, formulas, and repeated addition. You'll learn about rectangular prisms, dimensions, area, and cubic units, too. Attend the fairgrounds and see entertaining horse competitions, intricate ice carvings, beautiful garden shows, and much more! iMath is a leveled reader series that focuses on math skills taught in the Common Core State Standards Initiative. Created to align with CCSS, the storyline approach uses real life situations and open-ended questions that strengthen critical thinking skills and provide opportunities for discussion. 30 book set with 10 books in each level. Each Book Features: Real Life Situations - Introduces a real life problem or situation that can be solved with a working knowledge of the math topic. iMath Ideas - Takes a look at several ways of using math to solve the problem. Asks the reader to think about and choose which method works best for them. Discover Activity - Activities to strengthen math skills taught in the text. Storyline Approach - iMath uses a storyline approach. Math concepts are reinforced through age-appropriate characters, topics, and storylines. As the CCSS concepts get more in depth, the storylines and text become more complex, as well. Connections to Language Arts, History, or STEM. Career Connections - Math at Work sections highlight jobs that use math on a daily basis. Great for college and career readiness. What Comes Next? - Activities designed to strengthen Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math through engagement and extension. Additional Notes - Includes a full answer key, with solutions for each math problem presented, for educators and parents. Table of Contents, Glossary, Further Reading, Index

"If looking for a one-stop shop, Norwood's "iMath" provides a comprehensive set of CCSS-friendly resources that offer multiple strategies to problem solving. The mix of language arts and math will appeal to teachers.

This subset is a busy mix of language arts and math. The texts have short sentences, and most of the titles engage readers with a story. Each book begins with “iMath Ideas,” which introduces a concept, poses a math problem, and provides strategies for getting the answer, encouraging students to evaluate which method is strongest. Every volume ends by reiterating the same “iMath Ideas.” Additional sections include a “Discover Activity” and an informational section that connects the math discussion to science, history, or art. Each book ends with a “What Comes Next” page that gives ideas for expanding on the concepts presented and an “Additional Notes” section that provides answers to the various problems. Photos, charts, illustrations, and diagrams decorate the pages. At times, there is so much going on that the math might become lost for this young audience. For example, it seems almost random that “ligers” and “tigons” are discussed in Picnic Fun. Do not expect intense computational practice. This comprehensive set of CCSS resources may work well with reluctant math students."School Library Journal, April 2013
