## This Small House [electronic resource]

Second- and third-graders use calculators, paper and pencil, and mental math within a realistic task. Students plan the decorating of their milk carton houses using spatial sense to select appropriate furnishings while staying within their allocated budget. Covers the following NCTM standards: whole number computation, geometry and spacial sense, connections, and communication.

## Fractions With Geoboards [electronic resource]

Fourth- and fifth-graders investigate the concept of halves using the geoboard as an area model. They learn that one-half means two equal-sized parts with equal areas, but that are not necessarily congruent. Covers the following NCTM standards: fractions and decimals, geometry and spatial sense, reasoning, and problem solving.
