Here's
a popup, interactive book for older youngsters that unlocks
some of the mysteries of math. Featuring spinners, flaps,
and even a wrecking ball, this clever volume will fully engage
the young reader.
Statistics,
numbers, measurement, probability, geometry, sequences and
series are just some of the ways math impacts our daily lives.
In "nifty numbers" Litton explores square numbers,
fractions, percentages, and prime numbers while the "shaping
up" section illustrates how useful geometry can be.
In each
section of the book you'll find questions and challenging
exercises that will allow you to test your math skills. Do
you know what tessellation is? Ever hear of Fibonacci numbers
or Pascal's triangle? Not to worry! Once you've read this
book a few times you'll have a basic grasp of these concepts.
The
pages of this book contain a lot of information and fun material,
but you'll have to look closely so you don't miss any of the
interactive parts, because sometimes they blend right in.
It might be a good idea to run your fingers across each page
to make sure you don't miss anything.
