Description - The Math Book for Girls and Other Beings Who Count by Valerie Wyatt
This entertaining title in the Books for Girls series shows girls --- and boys, too --- that math is part of everyday life. They can try the math puzzles and activities to see for themselves how useful --- and how much fun --- math can be. They will also meet real women who use math in their jobs every day. Kids can learn why fractions are important when they bake a cake, develop spatial visualization skills by building a geodesic dome big enough to play in, use geometry to design unique wrapping paper, discover how grids simplify drawing pictures, and much more.
