• Searchable Terms - Mathematics
     
    If you are searching for a picture book to teach a specific mathematics concept, the SCASD elementary librarians have created a way for you to easily find one.  Specific titles have been identified as great choices for each of the concepts defined below. 
     
    To locate these books, please follow these directions:
    • Go to your school's catalog web page  
    • Broaden your search by setting the location to Elementary Schools (please see the screen capture below) rather than narrowing the search to just your specific building.

    • In the Find box, type in the word "math" followed by the specific searchable term from the list belowfor example:  math Calendar -- the "math" makes the search work much more specifically for you
    • Click on the Keyword search button
    • Review the list of suggested titles from all of the elementary schools in the district
    • Check out the book or books that you think will work best for your lesson -- remember, you may borrow books from other school libraries by using the Hold option (please check with your library's staff for help with this, as needed) OR
    • Click here for directions on how to request a book from another library.

    The following mathematics terms are searchable -- for best results, please use each term as it specifically appears below (for example, use the plural version of the term as noted below rather than the singular version).  A definition of each term is provided for your convenience.

    If you have any suggestions of additional titles that are great to use when teaching any of these concepts, please feel free to let your librarian know so it could be added to the list. Your suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.
     
    FYI:  Due to the way keyword searching works, some random titles that are not math-related may occasionally appear in your search results.
