“Oh no! Not fractions!” The anxiety that students (and teachers) experience with this core mathematical topic prompted the editors to bring together research on the teaching and learning of fractions.

Cartoon Corner 2
Peggy A. House (ed.)

A brand new collection of cartoons.

Engage students’ interest with the funny side of mathematics before progressing to activities on a variety of mathematical topics suitable for the middle years. An opening chapter provides suggestions for integrating cartoons into classroom learning. The collection is organised into sections: numbers, numeration and computation; ratio, rates, fractions and percentages; measurement; consumer mathematics; algebraic thinking; geometric thinking; and data analysis, statistics and probability.

Each cartoon is followed by a sequence of associated questions with detailed solutions. There are often challenge questions as well as other ideas for discussion and exploration. Teachers who field-tested the materials with their students share their thoughts ­– what worked well, hints and suggestions for the classroom, how they adapted the task – which is not only helpful but also very interesting.

The spelling of ‘humor’ is one clue that this is a US resource, and therefore the content includes some Americanisms and imperial units. Nonetheless, there is inspiration here for those looking for a visually stimulating and different way to start a lesson.
