Journey to the Other Side
Downloadable Album and Book Set
Carl Sherrill

Students learn a powerful repertoire of problem-solving strategies as they help the characters in this spellbinding novel journey around a planet on the other side of the universe. To move forward they must solve the challenging math and logic problems encountered in each chapter. Intriguing clues from sixteen lively songs help them on their way.

The kit includes: Each lesson consists of:
   • 27-chapter read-aloud novel     • A story chapter, read aloud
   • 16 songs Mp3 format    • A problem-strategy song 
   • Teacher's guide, with 107 reproducible pages      • Problems for guided and independent practice
   • Homework activities

The program typically takes 30 days to complete, including pre- and posttests. (The unit may be shortened by combining lessons and omitting some of the problems.)

The problems are drawn from many strands of mathematics, including number, measurement, geometry, functions, probability and statistics, logic and language, and algebra.

Mathematical investigations and problems with multiple solutions are included, as well as more traditional single-solution problems. Non-numerical problems and riddles round out the practice component. In addition, many of the problems provide practice with the basic math facts and operations.
