New Math Resource from Stenhouse - "Object Lessons"

Object Lessons - Teaching Math Through the Visual Arts, K-5
by Caren Holtzman and Lynn Susholtz

"When Caren Holtzman and Lynn Susholtz look around a classroom, they see "a veritable goldmine of mathematical investigations" involving number, measurement, size, shape, symmetry, ratio, and proportion. They also think of the ways great artists have employed these concepts in their depictions of objects and space -- In each chapter, the authors use everyday objects to create rigorous, hands-on activities that address key mathematics standards and concepts."
