Re-styled and featuring new, fun-to-do projects and color illustrations, this brand-new edition of Barron's Math Wizardry for Kids demonstrates to young readers that numbers are fascinating to ponder, fun to calculate, and an important key to scientific understanding. Kids explore intriguing concepts, such as Fibonacci numbers, which dramatically express symmetries in the shapes and number patterns that we regularly encounter in plant life and other aspects of nature. Among the recommended activities for young readers that are presented new in this edition are experiments with time-- Methods for measuring the Earth's rotation Directions for making a sun dial to measure daylight hours Suggestions for experimenting with a time-telling pendulum Additional fun projects include constructing ciphers and cracking codes, managing money, devising a stock market game, thinking like a computer, and many others. The authors' suggested tools for becoming a math wizard are simple and easily available. They include plenty of paper (including graph and construction paper), pencils, a ruler, a drawing compass, a directional compass, a protractor, a triangle, a simple calculator, a notebook for recording observations, and miscellaneous art supplies. Add them together with this fascinating book and the result equals hours of fun. Color illustrations throughout.
