The Kay Toliver Files File Box 1 Episodes:
Welcome to Mathematics – Ms. Toliver brings her students to an understanding of the value of mathematics in communication and as a tool for solving problems that have real-world relevance to her students.

Estimation - Ms. Toliver begins by asking her students to estimate the number of biscuits in a large box, then guides them through a process of refining their estimate using small, proportionate boxes. Students work in groups and devise strategies for refining their estimates.

Fractions - Ms. Toliver bases this lesson on equivalent fractions on an activity called “The Great Pizza Swap.” During the lesson, students review concepts and terminology of basic fractions, execute an interdisciplinary math/art project as they make their own “pizzas,” work out tables of equivalent fractions and get a hands-on grasp of equivalency in a free-for-all swap session.

Polygons - Ms. Toliver reviews polygons while guiding students in their investigation of the third dimension, as they transform polygons into polyhedra. Students develop spatial sense and reinforce existing knowledge as they work in teams to analyze model polyhedra and reconstruct them from their component polygons.

Testimonials

HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

This stuff makes lessons exciting so they are not just about numbers or just about manipulation, they’re in context. And it doesn’t take a lot of context to get kids excited about doing the other stuff. This makes them want to do it! HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

A. H. Math Resource Teacher

The response to Teacher Talk was very enthusiastic. Our teachers checked out all of the copies within twenty-four hours after the viewing!

The Teacher Talk materials also gave us some great ideas for teaching in teams of four: language arts, social studies, science and math teachers. After seeing the lesson our science teachers said, that’s the way to pull the language arts into our study plans.

DEAN OF MATHMATICS

You have done a grand job in making the vital connections between school and work, of exploration of real-world uses of math and science, of illustrating relationships between math and daily life, and of making the future real!
DEAN AND PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICS UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK

We found lots of ideas in the tapes that we use in our classrooms. Every lesson is like an adventure! And cost-wise, these exercises were extremely effective and fit very well into our district standards. The teachers thought that anybody could do these exercises. This is very important.
In Teacher Talk, there are perfect examples of activities that are both fun and relevant. These activities lend themselves to interdisciplinary use, merging literature, science and mathematics.
