Your student has been receiving a Scholastic math magazine called DynaMath. It is a fun collection of problems for them to work through that have real-life math applications. Read the information below from the Scholastic website to learn more about this math magazine.

An innovative way to build core math skills and connect math to the real world

Here’s how DynaMath makes math relevant and engaging:

  • 8 issues reinforce core math concepts by showing students how they apply to current events, science, and everyday experiences.
  • Standards-based practice problems in each issue build the critical math skills students need to succeed on standardized tests and in higher grades. 
  • Common Core Connections: In each issue we cover the grades 3–6 math standards, including basic operations, fractions, decimals, measurement, geometry, and graph/chart reading.
  • STEM Connections–DynaMath relates math to technology, invention, and careers through features like our popular math-in-careers series.
