Beth Schaubroeck's lessons for 4th and 5th grade accelerated students aim to help students appreciate the breadth and diversity of mathematical thought. The 68 lessons (in both pdf and doc formats) are grouped into 11 different topical units and are designed to take 15-25 minutes each of student time. They are appropriate for independent or small group work. The author provides student worksheets, solutions, and teacher guides. Topics include: Ancient Mathematics (Egyptian and Mayan), Baseball Statistics, Fibonacci Numbers, Games of Skill, Graphs and Networks, Iteration, Pick’s Theorem, Mobius Bands, Polygonal numbers, Statistics in the library, and Tangrams.
