Students will learn how to measure perimeter while engaged in reading about a day in the life of a landscape architect! This full-color book uses real-world examples to teach math concepts, and incorporates nonfiction reading to increase vocabulary and comprehension skills. The challenging practice problems, graphs, and sidebars provide many opportunities for students to practice their developing math skills, and apply what they've learned to their daily lives. Essential text features like a glossary, index, and table of contents will increase students' interest level and their interaction with the text. "Math Talk" poses problems for further thinking, requiring students to use their higher-order thinking skills. Teaching math and reading has never been so seamlessly integrated-or so easy!

Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.
