Racing Math: Checkered Flag Activities and Projects for Grades 4-8
If the names Gordon and Earnhardt mean more to your students than Pythagoras, if Ferrari's and funny cars get their motors running, this is the book for you. Your students will practice their math skills while learning cool stuff about the world of car racing. They'll calculate tongue weights for safely towing race-cars, determine how much time a driver wearing a fire-resistant suit has before flames blister his or her skin, and convert measurements to metric units for international racing. Activities and projects cover addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, decimals, ratios, averaging, charts and graphs, geometry, and interpreting data.
It's easy to motivate middle school students to enrich, review, or reinforce their math skills with Racing Math. The perforated, reproducible pages are great for individual or classroom work. Answers provided. Updated in 2005.
