Our Spanish/English mathematics terms handbook was developed with bilingual students testing needs in mind. Our glossary lists mathematical terms in English and Spanish for grades 5 - 16. Because these terms are translated "word by word" with no definitions, explanations or diagrams, our handbooks are valid for student use during standardized tests.
The terms are in alphabetical order by the English word. A separate cross-reference of Spanish words appears in the Index beginning on page 12. The terms used range from those appearing in the elementary school mathematics curriculum to the secondary school mathematics curriculum. Learn More
Mathematics as a Second Language Glossary
The Mathematics as a Second Language Glossary features mathematical terms defined in both English and Spanish with accompanying examples and/or drawings. The terms are in alphabetical order by the English word. A separate cross-reference of Spanish words only appears in the Index beginning on page 99. The terms used range from those appearing in the elementary school mathematics curriculum to the secondary school mathematics curriculum. Learn More
Fair Game suggests successful strategies to play and win impartial combinatorial games. Beginning with a simple nim-sum game and adding combinatorial requirements, the subsequent games paint a powerful picture of game theory and the human element of choice as they relate to mathematics.
Is a game "partizan" or "impartial"?
Do all combinatorial games follow universal patterns?
Read Fair Game and remove the element of chance from the gaming table. Learn More
Play It Again Sam
This book describes the patterns and applications of recurrence equations and recursion in mathematics and computer science. With applications to artificial intelligence, population modeling, searching and sorting information, and computer programming, recurrence equations are an exciting way to expose students to the concepts of critical problem solving and understanding patterns.
Which works better with a given problem, recursion or non-recursion? How about recursion and induction? Using easy-to-follow computer programs and charts, Play It Again Sam not only integrates computer programming and mathematical applications but also challenges students to find efficient algorithms to address realistic problems.

ResourceMAP English/Spanish TEST PREP
ResourceMAP modules are relatively short and designed for flexible implementation; that is, they can be used in regular classes as well as in special test-preparation settings. Each module contains a set of contextual problems in several formats: multi-part open response, short response, and multiple-choice. Accompanying the problem set are tip sheets that serve several purposes including lists of formulas, calculator instruction, and brief reviews of the module's underlying mathematics. Also provided are teacher notes (the module purpose, the mathematical focus, and implementation commentary), answers to all problems, and (in a few cases) handout masters. Learn More
TechMAP CD-ROM TEST PREP Vocational and Technical Applications
Covering topics from Algebra I to Precalculus, TechMAP modules show high school students real, immediate uses for mathematics.
All students MUST PASS the same standardized tests in order to graduate and succeed. All 22 TechMAP modules show tangible, real-world applications of the material on these exams, driving home required math skills.
The mathematics required by state tests is taught in algebra and geometry courses, but for many students this is not enough. TechMAP modules demonstrate these skills in vocational fields; they help reinforce existing mathematics courses through actual career activities. These modules are self-contained with exercises, teacher notes, handouts, etc., and can be used individually or together. Each module takes one to three weeks of classroom time. Learn More
Take math out of the classroom and have fun! Math Trails are walks of discovery-using neighborhoods, business districts, zoos, parks, libraries, etc.-where instructors and students discuss the mathematical properties of the world around them. Walkers cooperate along the trail as they discuss problems, from station to station. There's no competition or grading. Fully illustrated and packed with ideas, Math Trails shows you how to blaze your own trail right now. The math is targeted at the middle school level, and the book also contains a detailed, station-by-station map of an actual Math Trail in use for years. Learn More
