children’s problem-solving lesson
You are to select a piece of children’s literature that can be developed into a problem-solving lesson or that can be used to provide the context (theme) for a series of mathematics lessons. The piece of literature (i.e. a children’s storybook) you select may be either: (a) a story that deals directly with a mathematical concept or (b) a story that can be used as a theme for generating problems. The problem addressed should not be simply counting the number of objects in a picture, but involve higher-order concepts. Write a formalized lesson plan detailing the mathematical concept being explored. Include the book title, author, possible grade level, and mathematics topic. Be sure to include how you will differentiate the lesson for all students.
