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 snowflakes all fall from the same height in the sky? Would otters spread themselves evenly across lakes? Would groundhogs be aware of the date? In Sizing Up Winter, the third title in the Math in Nature series, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of time and measurement.
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.
