Overview

How long is the world's longest earthworm? How tall was a brachiosaurus? What's the average diameter of human hair? What's the circumference of the earth at the equator? Now you can discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions about math. Packed with illustrations, Math for Every Kid uses simple problems and activities to teach you about measurements, fractions, graphs, problem solving, and much more! Using activities that relate math to everyday life, this book will help you feel comfortable with math--right from the start. You'll make a sun clock, create a thermometer from a straw, race a paper boat, grow your own bean plant, and even play a game of ring the bottle. Each of the many problems and activities is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy to understand explanation. Every activity has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-8-- A basic introduction to math concepts. VanCleave's approach may seem a bit formal and textbook-like, but the actual content is fun and inviting. She divides the text into four broad categories: basics, which includes discussion of fractions, averages, equivalants and multiples; measurements; graphing; and geometry. Each section is systematically set up to state the objective or purpose; define facts or explain terms; present problems to solve; provide step-by-step solutions; give exercises to practice the concept; suggest an activity to apply the new skill; and supply answers to the exercises. All of the terms in the glossary are printed in boldface in the text. Activities show readers how to make $5 billion in 30 days, to create a glob solution like silly putty, to assemble and use a trundle wheel, or to graph Girl Scout cookie sales. Most sections include a ``Did you know?'' with amazing facts based on the principle explained. The format lends itself to individualized work from start to finish. A good selection for libraries looking for material on supplemental or remedial mathematics and a real boost to a weak section in most collections. --Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
