This mathematical story introduces young readers to Jayla, a young girl with a superpower. Jayla is a Number Navigator. She can navigate the number line, jumping from any number found on a hundred chart to 100 in one or two jumps. With New York City as her backdrop, Jayla highlights the landmarks and numbers she sees and uses them to show off her special talent.
As the story unfolds, Jayla reveals the secret behind her powers: her mastery of the combinations that make ten. Readers are invited into the story and challenged to test their own Number Navigator skills. Math MileMarkers® offers “math talk” suggestions and provides visual models that can be downloaded free at www.mathmilemarkers.com. The hundred chart and open number line serve as tools that keep students actively involved as the story unfolds and provide support as they create math stories of their own.
Jayla, the Number Navigator is the fourth book in the Math MileMarkers® series.
