Adventures with Mathematics
Are you looking for fresh ideas for math tutorial sessions, student math activities, enrichment activities, summer school, or for “Back To School Night”? Why not share a fun math game or describe an activity from one of the Adventures with Mathematics activity books? This is a series of 13 “grade level” books (K-8, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Probability and Statistics) being written, tested and published with teams of teachers, students and other mathematics educators across Michigan. This series of 13 books produced by the MCTM Scholarship Endowment Fund (SEF) is now complete and includes grade-to-grade transitions (K -8, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Statistics and Probability). All books have been aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M).
MCTM has created Common Core State Standards (CCSS-M) alignment documents for several of the Adventures with Mathematics series books that were published just prior to the release of the CCSS-M. Select the series book title to download the alignment document.

The Mathematics Scholarship Endowment Fund Committee (MCTM-SEF) has completed the writing of 13 grade level books intended for children to use throughout the summer to mitigate summer learning loss. The activities and short problems have been written by Michigan teachers, mathematics or statistics educators, and prospective teachers. They are fun, engaging, and help children not forget everything they learned in grade n while also preparing them for grade n + 1.
Proceeds benefit the MCTM Scholarship Endowment Fund which supports scholarships for prospective K-12 mathematics teachers.
