Math at the Bank: Place Value and Properties of Operations

by Ian F. Mahaney

Part of a Series: Core Math Skills.

Math at the Bank brings numbers to the real world, using bank transactions to teach place value and the properties of math operations. Opening a bank account, for example, may use the commutative property, and the associative property comes into play when filling out a deposit slip. Large color photographs of children and adults interacting with money emphasize the material’s relevance and familiarize young readers with potentially unfamiliar aspects of banking. “Figure It Out” problems on every spread test reader comprehension. The back matter includes answers and explanations, as well as a glossary, link to publisher-approved Web sites, and index.
