Useful for building math identity
Reviewed in the United States on September 8, 2018
I purchased this book for a read aloud to promote math identity in my 5th graders. Often, math is so abstract to students, and every year I have a large number of children who come into my class that are not comfortable with math. Typically, they hate it. This book helped my students to better understand the importance of math, and sticking with something to get better at it. We also discussed how math isn't about the number of problems you do, but rather the quality of our work and how it impacts other people.
