The Go Math program will be supplemented with various resources such as Exemplars, problems of the week, Math Steps and the Everyday Math program. Each student will be required to complete math projects. These projects will not only enable students to synthesize and apply concepts taught during the unit, but will also increase mathematical reasoning and critical thinking skills. Students will be expected to apply strategies and concepts taught to the real world around them. In addition, students will be required to reflect upon their learning in their math notebooks.

PROBLEM OF THE WEEKUSE FOUR SQUARE, CUDDLE OR CRAW:
Book Club
Task
Laurie, Amy, Heidi, Nancy and Roni all belong to a book club. Each month they choose a book to read. At the end of the month, they all get together to discuss the book and have dinner together. After they finish talking about the book and eating terrific food, they have one more job to do. They have to pick a new book for the next month.
One month, Heidi brought a catalog that had some great books on sale. The members of the club chose a $19.00 book that was on sale. If they bought 2 books at full price, they could get 50 percent off each additional copy. How much would each person have to pay to get his or her own copy of the book?
Bonus (optional): The store also offered a 2nd sale option. If the book club members bought 1 book at full price, they could get additional copies of the same book for only $10.95 each. Would this be a better option for them?
