  3.  Pattern Explorer Beginning - Pattern Problems to Develop Mathematical Reasoning (Grades 3-4) The Critical Thinking Company

    Pattern Explorer Beginning - Pattern Problems to Develop Mathematical Reasoning (Grades 3-4) The Critical Thinking Company

    SKU: 4897

    $14.99

    Mathematics and science can be thought of as a search for patterns and structure.

    This 88-page book provides rich and diverse collections of pattern problems for students in Grades 3-4 to explore, investigate, discover, and create.

    The five different types of pattern problems found in this book are: Pattern Predictor, Equality Explorer, Sequence Sleuth, Number Ninja, and Function Finder.

    There are optional hints and detailed solutions.

    From a developmental perspective, the ability to recognize a pattern signals the transition from concrete to abstract thinking.

    So having students explore pattern problems helps sensitize them to the discovery process that provides a foundation for authentic learning and abstraction.

    These activities are independent and self-contained, but tend to build on one another and get gradually more sophisticated. 

    Although this book's patterns appropriate for Grades 3-4, experiences with these activities may vary widely depending upon readiness for abstraction.

    There are many ways to solve and explain a pattern problem, and the solutions provided are not intended to be unique. In all situations, and at whatever pace and facility, the transition from concrete to abstract thinking is worthwhile.

    Recommended for grades 3 and 4.

    Big Book of Mazes and Labyrinths

    SKU: 13230

    $8.95

    In labyrinths and mazes the path least traveled does make all the difference — but you will also find yourself bridge crossing, escaping from caves, lighting firecrackers, untangling snakes, ringing bells, visiting country taverns, spelling out passwords, and solving a host of other unique problems in Walter Shepherd's fascinating takeoffs on one of the world's oldest intellectual stimulations. There are 50 new puzzles in this book. There are crime names and Christmas mazes, country mazes and city mazes, mazes for all skills and mazes for all seasons of the year. There are even mazes that are games you can play over and over again. Each maze has a story to go with it and often a set of hints and complications. The illustrations are all printed in large size (perfect for framing or creating in craft or needlework for even more amazing fun). Some are classical mazes: others are solid mazes, ripple mazes, short-path labyrinths, avoidance labyrinths, mazes in which you have to visit all rooms and mazes that test your skill in countless other ways. Also included is an introduction to the history of mazes and a special section on maze solving. If somehow you don't get one of the mazes or feel you have to test your own conclusions, a solutions section in the back gives full information. Walter Shepherd has made another significant contribution to cerebral recreations in this volume. You will find hours of pleasure and hours of delightful torture when you show them to friends. Both young and old will have fun solving these puzzles. 128 pages. From Dover Publications. Learn More
