Allmänna fakta



This is not just any book, it is a math alphabet book ! It introduces and reinforces math vocabulary, and explains how certain terms relate to math. It also teaches about the history of math.

This book is more about learning different mathematical terms from each letter of the alphabet. Not only terms are in the book, but different math symbols. These symbols and terms are explained and their relation to mathematics. I wouldn't necessarily read this book as a read aloud as a whole, but read it one alphabet at a time. The book is chronologically written alphabetically and that is why I would read it to introduce a unit one by one. It is more for vocabulary usage which is great because vocabulary content is content knowledge!… (mer)

Very great book to read-aloud to students in grades 4th-5th. They will love to see the colorful pictures and be able to see all the math concepts combined in one book. It introduces proportions in a fun and exciting way. The book does not really have a main character, it is more centered towards proportions, shrinking and enlarging, and measurements. The main concept is centered around mathematics. If would definitely read this book out loud to my students to introduce ratios.

How Much Is a Million? is a colourful picture book that seeks to make large numbers (million, billion, and trillion) more understandable to children. I first encountered this book as a child (I was the kind of hopelessly nerdy kid who was naturally good at and interested in math, so this book was perfect for me) and I still enjoy looking through it today. The author and illustrator use simple examples (how tall is a tower of kids standing on each other's shoulders, how big of a bowl is needed for goldfish, etc.) to demonstrate the size of the numbers. The illustrations are quirky and detailed and fun to look at (I especially love that the kids have a pet unicorn!). The author even includes a note at the end explaining the actual numbers and calculations in the book (possibly older children could enjoy reproducing these calculations or coming up with examples of their own). This is definitely a book I would recommend.… (mer)
