Good intentions, poorly done I looked forward to seeing a book presenting to the very young simple math ideas which are outside the school curriculum.I leave it to librarians and teachers to say how children react to this book; what I wish to point out are two instances where the mathematical knowledge conveyed by the author, not to mention of the editors and translators, is below par. On p. 16-17 we see perspective views of two walls of a house which have on them pictures whose true shapes are squares.One needs no expertise to see that something about these views is wrong. The laws of perspective enable one to say what it is.If you hold a camera straight and take a picture of a vertical square on a wall, the images of the horizontal sides can not be longer than the longer vertical side image. In the book they are much longer! A written discussion of pespective is in fact too difficult for early elementary grades. The proper way to discuss images with young children is by producing images of objects with a camera obscura, a box with a pinhole or lens in the middle of one side and frosted glass on the other. The LCD screen of a digital camera could also be used, except that it is too small and delicate. ------------ A later section of the book is devoted to the following kind of puzzle.Can we walk in one stretch along every block of every street of a village exactly once?Leonhard Euler pointed out, first, that this is impossible if there are more than 2 junctions where an odd number of streets come together, and second, that it is otherwise possible. The first statement can be derived in a way which even a third grader can understand. Every time we pass through a junction, two more of the blocks which meet at the junction become traversed. Thus, at a junction other than where we start or end our walk, we can finish off all the blocks only if the number meeting at the junction is even. The author devotes a number of pages to this puzzle but misses the opportunity to present Euler's simple but ingenious argument. Worse than that, he misquotes Euler by saying the walk is impossible if there are more than 3 odd junctions.This is true but does not imply that the walk is impossible on Euler's original example, the figure on the left of p. 66, which has 3 odd junctions. ...

Enjoying Math
More than seventy 'kid friendly' math games
A little math treasure to keep... This is a recomended book for those teacher or parents that want to make math a little more exicitng for children.Mathematics is not only about learning it from a textbook, but also from hands on experiences through games and visual aids.This books touched upon the idea that it's okay to make math fun for you and a child. One or two games in this collection dates back about 3,300 years ago in Egyptian times.Symmetry is learned from making masks and faces from the U.S. and Native Americans.Islamic "POLYGONS" are also found in this book.You can learn to make "Hopi Flat Baskets" that dates back about 1,500 years ago when baskets were found in the ruins of Anasazi homes.These baskets show children about symmetry and design.Repeated patterns from Alaska show children that we don't only have patterns in designs but, we also have patterns in every day items all around us. This is an excellent book that lets children view math from the fun and creative perspective.Teachers can have fun while teaching district standards and make sure that our youth isn't bored with the "textbook" syndrome as Harry Wong puts it.We need to show children that mathematics deals with every day life and that it doesn't only appear on the pages of a text every five days.Mathematics is the necessary means for survival in our complex and equative society.This books let's us step outside of the "textbook syndrome" and let children explore the "real-world" experiences. ...
