This resource guide from the Middle School Portal 2 project, written specifically for teachers, provides links to exemplary resources including background information, lessons, career information, and related national science education standards. In the section Real Numbers in Real Life, we offer scenarios that connect mathematics to questions that touch the world of the middle school student. Besides their real-world context, these activities challenge students to deepen their understanding of numbers — especially fractions, decimals, and percents. Another section, Number Skills, concentrates almost entirely on equivalent representations of these numbers as well as practice in computation and estimation. These activities appear in game formats, as most likely to engage students in the practice they need.
