Synopsis

From Toothpicks to Treetops Quantity and Space in Mathematics by Rita J. Corbett

From Toothpicks to Treetops: Quantity and Space in Mathematics serves the needs of the math whiz and the non-mathematically inclined alike by exploring and applying mathematical constructs to everyday situations. By providing a vantage point from which to discern how students' prior knowledge can be used to help expand their mathematical thinking and increase their ability to communicate, author Rita Corbett outlines four ways students can begin to engage in problem solving: Identification Comparison Combination Separation Each method is used to reveal connections between mathematical thoughts, topics, and applications, and activities at the end of each chapter help students understand the relationship of mathematics to their surroundings.
