Close encounters with engaging professionals! After working through the math problems encountered on the job, students will have no doubt about the absolute importance of math in the real world. Just like a field trip, but a lot more practical, this book takes students out into the field where they count fish, direct air traffic, carve a totem pole, write software codes, care for orphaned sea creatures, recover sunken valuables, mush dogs, salvage timber, feed the homeless, film wildlife, and more. Features 22 diverse occupations that incorporate a variety of math skills on a daily basis. Covers: selecting an operation, determining place value, using fractions and decimals, working with geometry, applying measurement skills, estimating, and recording and analyzing data. Each set of problems is presented on separate reproducible worksheets, and the book includes a comprehensive answer key. 88 pages. Grades 4-8.
