The
games in The Toymaker’s Mysterious Math Carnival were
created to amuse and delight, but they can also provide
children with opportunities to practice math concepts commonly
introduced in grades K-3.
The
paper toys that constitute the carnival are suitable for
use in the classroom, for homeschooling, remedial practice,
and afternoons of fun that just happen to have built-in
ways to explore and practice mathematical concepts.
Each
game meets a common core standard established by the states
for the development of mathematical concepts and their practice,
including the manipulation of real objects to promote mathematical
understanding.
