Math Analogies Beginning - eBook


Description and Features


Description and Features

Standards-based analogies that teach analogical and mathematical reasoning.

Description and Features

Analogies occur in life and frequently in high-stakes tests. Understanding analogies and the ability to reason analogically (reasoning used to identify, evaluate, and solve an analogy) are important problem-solving skills essential to mathematical development. It is, therefore, beneficial for students to learn about analogies as soon as reasonably possible.

The immediate benefit is to recognize and solve simple analogies. The long-term benefits are improved reasoning skills that enable students to break problems into their component parts, recognize analogies embedded in arguments, and evaluate them.

This fun 48-page, 152 activity book teaches students to break problems down into their component parts, making it easier to recognize familiar formats that enable students to produce solutions.

The analogies in this book are designed around grade-appropriate standards for each of the five mathematics content strands as defined by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics:

  1. Number and Operations
  2. Algebra
  3. Geometry
  4. Measurement
  5. Data Analysis and Probability

The beauty of many of the items presented here is that they are language independent. Thus, non-native English-speaking students have the opportunity to participate with all other students in the challenges presented. When all students are involved, each one has the opportunity to learn the basics and beauty of logic and mathematics while developing and strengthening language skills.
