Math is everywhere — even at the park! Pump your legs on a swing. Zip down a slide. The park is filled with fun...and math! This 24-page photo-filled book will help young readers find shapes in playground equipment, compare heights with friends, and create equations with dogs on a walk. Math at the Park will get young readers to notice what other math is hiding on their path!
This fun and unique Math on My Path series encourages beginning readers to notice early math concepts in familiar places. Open-ended prompts accompany vivid photos of kid-friendly places including the park, the library, and more. In "I Spy" fashion, readers are invited to observe each photo closely to find and discuss ways to apply math in the real world: counting, sorting, addition and subtraction, recognizing shapes, and more. Includes a photo glossary, an after reading activity, and a hands-on activity that helps readers apply what they learned.
