My book was geared toward a 3rd grade level. According to the TEKS 3rd grade geometry and measurement: the student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional geometric figures to develop generalizations about their properties.

The first math problem in the book is one of probability. What are the “odds” that 3 children can get two bedrooms clean in 1 hour? This would be an experimental probability problem because I am conducting an “experiment”. However, I’ve conducted this experiment more than once in the past and it has turned out unfavorable. But for the sake of the book, let’s say that the odds of 3 children, getting 2 rooms clean in 1 hour is 3:2. TEKS 111.5. Grade 3, 5A states, The student is expected to use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving process and the reasonableness of the solution.

I used a pie chart to solve the next statistics problem. There are 6 articles of clothing on the floor and 3 pairs of shoes (which count as one article each). So total, there are 10 articles of clothing. How many are shirts, how many shorts, and how many shoes? There are 3 shirts, 3 shorts and 3 pairs of shoes, and 1 hat. What percentage of each article of clothing that is on the floor? 30% of the clothing is shirts, 30% is shorts, 30% is shoes, and 10% is the hat! TEKS 111.5 Grade 3, 5D states: The student is expected to communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate.

The next problem deals with lines of symmetry. The girls have twin sized beds equal distance apart. If there beds are made exactly alike, could you draw a line of symmetry? Where would the line of symmetry be drawn? Right down the middle of the lamp sitting...

...for many doctors and researchers. BMI is calculated using a mathematical formula that accounts for a person’s height and weight. BMI is equal to a person’s weight in kilograms (kg) divided by height in meters squared (BMI=).
Aim
The aim of this project work is to investigate the relationship between height, weight and BMI with students’ health condition. The purpose of this campaign is to create awareness among students about obesity or underweight related to health problems....

...The area of study known as the history of mathematics is primarily an investigation into the origin of discoveries in mathematics and, to a lesser extent, an investigation into the mathematical methods and notation of the past.
Before the modern age and the worldwide spread of knowledge, written examples of new mathematical developments have come to light only in a few locales. The most ancient mathematical texts available are Plimpton 322 (Babylonian mathematics c. 1900 BC),[2] the Rhind...

Introduction
Over the last few decades the basic theory of sets has become deeply embedded in modern
mathematics; so deeply that many authors and instructors forget that many years of diﬃcult
mathematical reasoning went into set theory’s development and take for granted that students have a...

...language. Although mathematics has existed for millennia among human cultures, and practical applications for it have existed ever since the Egyptian architects and pyramid builders, the reason why every single country in the world today has more hours of math in their public school curriculum than say, dance, music or even the humanities, is because mathematics has only found widespread use among human society in later years, namely during the period of industrialization and...

...MATH RATIONALE
“The mathematic mind is a mind that is especially interested in mathematics. Rather than find them boring and absurd, they find them interesting and absorbing. It is a fact that most children in our Montessori schools manage to achieve great enthusiasm while working with mathematics. Is the preparation of their minds that allows them to reach this pleasure."
Maria Montessori, London Lectures, 1946, p 41
Mathematics has always been a difficult subject for...
