Patterns and Practicalities is designed to guide the students to a successful and insightful exploration of the fi ve strands of mathematics in K to 12, which are Number and Number Sense, Measurement, Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. It begins with the new topic on sets, followed by real numbers, measurement, and algebra. At this level, the concepts and relationships in Geometry are all derived inductively. Statistics focuses on graphs and average. To encourage the learners to communicate mathematics eff ectively and to reason mathematically, the exercises include Communicating and Mathematical Reasoning. Performance Tasks and Rubrics are provided to help learners transfer their skills to real-life settings.
Patterns and Practicalities (K to 12) is a junior high school series of books. These books follow the K to 12 Mathematics Curriculum that is implemented by the Department of Education. This edition of Patterns and Practicalities retains the well-liked design and approach of the original series, but has been revised to achieve the following:
It follows the scope and sequence of topics in the K to 12 Mathematics Curriculum; includes more activities, worksheets for fun, web links, quiz bee items, and performance tasks and rubrics to give students better appreciation and understanding of the content; provides the teachers more guidance in teaching mathematics.
