As young readers journey into the natural world, they will discover that numbers, patterns, shapes ― and much more! ― can be found in everyday plants and animals.
What if animals and plants knew math, just like us? Would spiders draw pictures in their webs? Would narwhals sort blocks of ice by shape? Would insects know what’s above and what’s below? In Shaping Up Summer, the final title in the Math in Nature series, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of geometry, symmetry, and spatial sense.
This interactive, poetic,and artful picture book series is an enticing way to introduce math to kids ― they will laugh, use their imaginations, and learn through activities inspired by the books.
Each of the four books in the Math in Nature series covers one season of the year and one area of math curriculum. Colorful, cut-paper collage art evokes the natural world, while two levels of text ― one a lyrical story, the other asking children to problem-solve ― bring the reader to a full understanding of the math concept being covered.
