Real-World Reasonableness

Fifth graders apply math to real-world situations. In this mathematics lesson, 5th graders are read the book, "Math Curse," which discusses ways in which math is used each day. Students then write a sequel to the book in groups, brainstorming their own math problems that could be encountered. Students make both a rough draft and final copy of the class book.
