According to Barton (The Barton Series)

Customer Reviews
THE BARTON SERIES<br />The Barton Series was conceptualised and written with the primary objective of encouraging young students to appreciate how mathematics in used in the real world. The series explore mathematics through the creation of a model child, ‘Barton’ whose life experiences are captured through delightful, realistic and entertaining stories. The stories span just about all the activities in which young children participate in school and with their families during their young, juvenile, carefree and adventurous years.<br /><br />The authors believe that a major and poignant barrier to the learning, understanding and appreciation of mathematics is the inability of students to comprehend the language embedded in worded problems. The books therefore provide a novel vehicle to connect numeracy and literacy since, comprehension, most assuredly, is really the key to decoding the mathematics. And so, several visual props have been deliberately added in every story, to assist learners who may be challenged in word recognition. <br /><br />The series also aims at inculcating moral and ethical values as the stories are designed to encourage good behaviour and caring ways among young children. While many of the stories build on mathematics content, others focus on the process goals of mathematics such as critical thinking, problem solving and developing positive dispositions such as respect, perseverance and team spirit. <br /><br />Thus, mathematics becomes user friendly through this methodology that seeks to eliminate anxiety and fear for the discipline. Such negative experiences have prevented thousands of students from learning mathematics throughout their lives. The series appeals to the child’s curiosity and desire to have fun as they connect their life experiences to mathematics. The reader will experience meaningful encounters with mathematics and so appreciate its inherent beauty and efficacy in solving real life problems.<br /><br />These colourful and beautifully illustrated books will strongly complement not just the mathematics, but language arts and several other curriculum areas that are incorporated at the primary level in any education system.<br /><br />

Experiences of Women of Color in an Elite US Public School

<div>This study explores the experiences of women of color who attended an elite, predominantly white public high school in the Northeastern United States through one of three points of entry: as town residents attending their local high school, or as commuter or boarding students via two distinct voluntary racial desegregation programs.  Women in all three groups experience feelings of marginalization and stigma. At the same time, many also discuss the benefits of having lived in or attended school in this environment. Women developed strong internal bonds within and across their respective groups, some were able to racially diversify social networks and increase access to new forms of social capital through both their own initiatives and efforts on the part of adults in the school and community, and many also discuss the acquisition of elite forms of cultural capital that have served them into adulthood. Even with these general trends, point of access clearly mediates the experience, with geographic and symbolic boundaries varying by group. <br /></div>
