Amazing Math Projects: Projects You Can Build Yourself Reviews
I LOVE this book. Geared toward older children, my toddler and preschooler really enjoyed watching and "helping" me do a lot of these projects. The accompanying website (available only through the book) is great too. I am reluctant to take it back to the library.
Wonderful!! I just skimmed every page, and love it. Well organized, simple activities. My only gripe is the front cover (naughty book designer) includes a bit of modular origami (which I happen to be doing now). See the shape middle-bottom, with green, yellow, orange, etc? Nothing even remotely close to that in the book. That image is what made me grab this off the shelf over the other kid-math-activity books. Lucky me, I can find and make it myself, but I was disappointed in the "false advertising."
I think this book is really great for teachers and parents wanting to educate children in a fun way. They've got a whole series of books similar to this one and I plan on checking more of them out.
