Sometimes you order a package deal, and you never know what you are going to get. i recently took a gamble on the Math book sets for teachers in the latest Scholastic Book Club flyer. These are packages that don’t list individual titles, but rather a blanket name such as “Primary Math Pack” or “Math Fun Teaching Time Kit for Teachers”. As you probably already know, these can range from being a great deal to being a big waste of money.
SO, i was pleasantly surprised at some of the titles i received. Notably, Greg Tang’s books (he, and by extension, the books, are phenomenal–i was able to catch one of his presentations at OAME 2011 and it was awesome). But it didn’t stop there. If you have a chance, pop by the office to see some of these titles that range from Primary to Intermediate. i will be sharing them with the Numeracy Committee at November’s meeting, but if you can’t wait to hear what your rep has to say, or you want to see them for yourself, come on by!
