Abstract

Math by the Month features collections of short activities focused on a monthly theme. These articles aim for an inquiry or problem-solving orientation that includes four activities each for grade bands K–2, 3–4, and 5–6. In this issue, students explore questions that bring out their desire to enjoy and ponder puzzling situations. The problems were chosen to engage students in thinking and reasoning within a theme of apps that highlight three important practices in mathematics—reasoning, making viable arguments, and attending to precision—particularly with regard to the use of mathematical language.
