Flat Math Scores? Try Using Fun Math Books like I Like Money Math!

The Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education just released the latest Math scores for the nation showing 4th graders have made no progress in math since 2007. The report can be found here: http://nationsreportcard.gov/math_2009/.

We'd like to suggest that you try fun math trade books in your school or library. Our new series: I Like Money Math! aims to keep elementary-level students engaged, while teaching them how to add, subtract, count, identify, and solve money world problems. The series is newly published and written by author Rebecca Wingard-Nelson. Ms. Wingard-Nelson is a mathematics educator and has developed and written state assessment test and exams.

Each title is available in a library-bound edition or in paperback. Free eownloadable worksheets for each title can be found at the series link (click on title above).
