Introduction

they start drawing. Tell them to work carefully, as


many activities have more answers than problems
to be solved.
Designs to Construct (pages 4261) are fun
and easy to make. Students complete math
problems, then color
Queens Gem
the shapes based on
the answers. After coloring the design,
students simply cut it
out, then fold and tape
it together. (Easy
assembly how-tos are
provided on pages 42
and 43.) For these
designs, students need
crayons or colored
pencils, scissors, and
tape. The finished products are colorful threedimensional designs that can be hung on mobiles,
used as holiday ornaments, or given as gifts.
Note: Its not necessary for fourth and fifth
graders to learn the names for complex geometric
shapes. But you will no doubt have some students
who want to learn these technical definitions.
Youll find the term for each construction listed
on pages 42 and 43.
To help you use this book along with your
math curriculum, the chart on pages 6 and 7 organizes the activities by skill area and level. You can
see at a glance all of the activities that focus on a
specific math skillfor example, subtraction of
fractions with unlike denominators.
Many of the activity pages include a Taking It
Further problem. These problems are designed to
challenge students by allowing them to apply the
math operation used to complete the main design
activity. Answers to these problems can be found
on pages 6264.
Dont let students stop with these activities.
Invite them to create their own designs for their
classmates to color, create, and construct!

There are three different types of activities in this


book. Teaching tips for each type follow.
Designs to Color (pages 824) are geometric
shapes with basic math
problems in them.
Stained Glass
Octagon
Students solve the
problems, then color
the shapes based on
the answers. The finished designs will make
a perfect addition to
your math learning
center or bulletin


board. For these
designs, students need
crayons or colored
pencils. Tell students to solve all of the problems
before they start coloring.
In the section Designs to Create (pages 2541),
students also solve math problems. Then they
draw straight lines to
connect dots beside
The North
Star
the problems to the
dots beside their
answers. When all of
the dots have been
connected, beautiful
line designs emerge
that are suitable for
framing. For these
designs, students need
a ruler, a sharp pencil,
and an eraser. One of
the activities requires a compass. Again, encourage students to solve all of the problems before

How to Use This Book

D E C IM A L S

Dazzling Math Line Designs

athematics is everywhere! We use it to


tile a floor, build a skyscraper, or create
designs like the ones in this book.
When students begin to make the connection
between art and math, their eyes light up and
mathematics becomes more than a row of tedious
problems on the page. I hope that by creating the
designs on these pages, your students will discover
and enjoy the creative side of mathematics.

Form a star polygon by connecting the dots beside the decimals inside the
pentagon. Begin with the smallest decimal and continue connecting the dots until
you reach the largest decimal. The first and last lines have been drawn for you.
Taking It Further: Compare each pair of decimals inside the outer stars by writing
<, >, or = on each blank line.
If the decimals inside the star are equivalent, color the star blue.
If the decimals inside the star are not equivalent, color the star red.
Finish the design by coloring the rest of the shapes with the colors of your choice.

You will need a compass to complete this design. Set your compass points as
shown below. Then round each decimal in the design to the nearest whole
number. If the decimal rounds to 5, place your compass point on the dot beside
that number and draw a circle. Watch a flower bloom!
(Hint: If the number to the right of the decimal point is 5 or greater, increase the whole
number by one. If that number is less than 5, the whole number stays the same.)

Put your compass point here.

How to Assemble the 3-D Constructions

Dazzling Math Line Designs: Grades 4-5 Cindi Mitchell, Scholastic Teaching Resources

The activity pages that follow (pages 4461) give students the opportunity to color designs based on
answers to mathematical problems and then construct them into three-dimensional shapes. While most
of the designs are self-explanatory, these two pages give complete construction directions. If you like,
enlarge the patterns on a photocopier before having students construct them.

Cut out the pattern along the outer solid lines


and fold along the dotted lines.
Tape each flap to the
underside of the large square
shape. Fold down the small
square and tape it in place.
