Students will use algebraic thinking, data analysis and the engineering design process to solve problems in real-world settings.

In Amazon Mission, students help a native village surmount malaria, and confront the environmental hazards of gold-mining.

Students will conduct mathematics investigations including

calculating and interpreting the slope of a line

graphing a compound inequality

producing and analyzing a line graph that relates two variables

distinguishing between independent and dependent variables

drawing a three-dimensional object and its net

finding the surface area of a three-dimensional object

writing a compound inequality statement

identifying and extending exponential patterns

calculating compound probabilities

Science investigations include:

conducting two controlled experiments

collecting experimental data in a table

graphing simulation data and describing trends

using a computer model

Building Math was developed through a partnership with the Boston Museum of Science and Tufts University, and successfully piloted in Boston-area schools.

Each book includes a poster illustrating the engineering design process and a DVD with classroom implementation samples.

Addresses Common Core State standards and ITEA standards for technological literacy
