Mathematics can be fun and exciting if we as teachers make it exciting and fun for our students. Our goal, as authors of this book, is to help you find creative ways to bring enjoyable mathematics material into your classroom. TAG - Tricks, Activities, and Games are ideas that we have implemented in our own teaching to help students explore, discover, conjecture, investigate, verify, explain, and understand mathematics in a creative and motivating way. It is important to arouse each student’s curiosity by presenting mathematics in fresh and stimulating ways that are captivating and motivating. The ideas presented in this book are designed to help students become powerful mathematics thinkers and to help them make sense out of mathematics. Based on the NCTM Standards and NCTM’s new Focal Points, we have emphasized Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, and Data Analysis and Probability. We have provided objectives, materials, procedures, and solutions to the entries.
