Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 3

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides your students with additional information about the topics that appear in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

The article “Winter Olympics, 2002” describes the events of the 2002 Winter Olympics Games in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Have students read the article on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity. The activity has students write a winter sports glossary to accompany the article.

The Data Hunt activity has students answer multiple-choice questions based on information in a table. The questions provide the student extra practice with determining mean, median, and mode.
